Take A Tour Of The Historic And Haunted Dowling House In Illinois This Spooky Season

The small city of Galena is home to hundreds of historic buildings, but the oldest here is the Dowling House. Built out of limestone in 1826, it also happens to be the oldest stone structure in the state of Illinois. While the Dowling House is historic, it’s also known to be haunted. Now a museum, visitors have their choice of a historical tour or a haunted tour through one of the local tour companies in town.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
