Ghost/Haunted Tours

With as much history as Galena and Jo Daviess County has rooted in its streets, it’s not surprising that we have a scary ghost legend or two. You can take a guided ghost tour by foot or by shuttle for a little history and mystery while exploring three haunted locations. The DeSoto House Hotel has also been known to have paranormal sightings in both the past and present with guests and staff claiming to have seen people in period clothing walk through walls where doorways used to be, hear voices where no one was staying and smell the smoke of cigars.
