Our Fall colors here in Illinois peaked last weekend and now the color is fading and leaves are falling. So when I looked back through my photos of our recent trip to Galena, I enjoyed seeing the changing leaves on the trees. So without further adieu, here’s the remaining photos of the beautiful, historic homes in this town where Ulysses S. Grant once lived.
If you saw my previous post on Galena, you know that a lot of the homes here are brick … and old.
And hey! I knew I liked this house for a reason. They’re Bears fans! (Check out the fence.)
If this were my house, my bedroom would take residence in the windowed room on the second floor.
Just imagine the dreamy moonlight streaming in as you nod off,
with the sun’s warm rays to wake you in the morning.
Here’s a big vine with a house attached to it!
Great front porch … but I’d cut down those evergreens in front for a better view.
Maybe they prefer the privacy it affords from passersby (ie gawkers) like me.
The double front door is just gorgeous!! Hope you enjoyed our little walk around Galena, Illinois! Perhaps another trip to Galena at Christmastime is in order.
