Galena is a small town in northwest Illinois known for its well-preserved 19th-century buildings like the 1826 Dowling House. The Italianate Ulysses S. Grant Home was a gift from local citizens to the Civil War general who later became a U.S. president. Horseshoe Mound, on the outskirts of Galena, offers views of three states. Other mounds, thought to be ancient ceremonial sites, can be seen at Casper Bluff.
