Farmers Guest House
Bed and Breakfast

Galena, Illinois

This structure in Galena, Illinois remains one of the Midwest's premier
examples of 19th-century commercial vernacular architecture.

The Farmers' Guest House in Galena, Illinois was built in 1867 and operated as a bakery, store and hotel. This handsome Italianate-style building in was a favorite overnight stop for area farmers bringing goods to market, as well as a gathering place for local folk.

Susan and Donald Steffan welcome you to experience the delight, charm and romance of a by-gone era along with the conveniences of today.
