It was great to hear the life story of an individual that is almost forgotten in history now. Very influential individual. The tour guides give a very vibrant depiction of this individual and they many things that he did for our country. Don't miss it.
This was my favorite place in Galena. The history will blow you away! It is only open on Fridays, so plan accordingly. This is a "don't miss" historical site when in Galena.
Our tour guide was thorough and knowledgable. The house is faithfully restored to much of its original state. The 30 minute tour was just enough to make us want to learn more about Mr. Washburne.
Last time we were here , the State was working on restoring this home. It it the site of one of Galenas founding fathers. Very successful political figure in the House of Representatives and Ambassador to France. A pallbearer for President Lincoln and close friend of President Grant, he purchased Grant's home when the President retired penniless. Part of seven... 更多
make it s stop if you can- you get an amazing and thorough history of the man, the town and times - Nancy, our docent was excellent - and she deserves all our thanks as a volunteer with the Questers - because there is no budget to staff Washburne house, it is the volunteers from this group who keep this... 更多

We visited here while visiting Galena over Memorial Day Weekend. The staff was friendly and the tour was informative. If you are planning on seeing Ulysses' home then you should add this to your list as well. Well worth the visit. It is right across the street from Alice Bed and Breakfast.
Across the street from Alice's Snyder B + B. It is the home of one of the men who invented the Republican Party and was a great supporter of Abraham Lincoln. The house has at least six top quality white marble fireplaces on the first floor. We did not have time to tour the six bedroom second floor. The highlight... 更多
We got a very personal tour with great stories and history of both the family and the house. No charge for the tour - donations encouraged. Be aware it is only open for a limited time on Fridays - check the website. Highly recommend this tour if you love historic homes - ties to both Grant & Lincoln.
The house was owned by a House Representative, and many famous people visited there included Lincoln and Grant. Some original pieces. Pictures of all their children very nice!
