Matthew’s Haunted Pub Crawl- Ghost Tours, 108 S Main Street, (563) 564-2983 

Matthew’s Haunted Pub Crawl offers just one tour, but it is a pub crawl that will be most enjoyable as you “drink spirits amongst the spirits” (their words!) Lasting approximately 3 hours, participants visit 2 to 3 haunted pubs, and if you aren’t a drinking person, it’s ok. You are still encouraged to participate in the tour and learn the history of our town, as the hosts use ghost equipment in an effort to contact the spirits. 

Amelia’s Galena Ghost Tours, INC, 129 S Main Street, (815) 994-2868 

Not every ghost tour has to be a walking one. Amelia’s Galena Ghost Tours offers a tour of the spirit world from the comfort of a luxury bus! The stories told here will surely bring you goosebumps, especially when contact with the spirits is made via EMF Detector and Ghost Box. Three tours take place daily, leaving at 6 PM, 7:30 PM, and 9 PM, and include stops at the Robinson Miners Cottage, built in 1840. 

Stay With Farmers Guest House if You’re a Friendly Ghost!

You may wonder if Farmers Guest House has experienced any visits from the spirit world, especially knowing it has stood on this site since 1867. Well, we can say that the smell of pipe tobacco has been detected when no one near has smoked cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. Aside from that, however, the only guests we experience are ones that are very much alive and ready to live their vacation dreams come true in our warm and welcoming rooms.
