Ghost Tours

ghostTo hear the locals tell it, Galena is a hotspot for ghostly incidents. In fact you’d be hard-pressed to find a long-term Galenian who doesn’t have a tale to tell. If you’re not easily spooked, you just might want to check out one of the many ghost tours in Galena. I recommend Amelia’s Galena Ghost Tours.  They depart daily at 6:00, 7:30 and 9:00.  These are popular tours so advance registration is always a good idea.  Go to Amelia’s Galena Ghost Tours website for details.  Happy Haunting!
