On the Road Again.....

 Today's destination is Galena, Illinois.  I traveled to Galena to attend our ANG Chapter's annual retreat, held at the Desoto House Hotel.  It is a very historic hotel in downtown Galena.  Galena is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from home, but due to some road construction took a bit longer. 

The hotel itself is the oldest continuously run hotel in the state of Illinois and has seen many historic events.  Abraham Lincoln has stayed there, Ulysses S. Grant used it has his campaign headquarters during an election, and stayed there.  Many other famous historical figures have also stayed there. 


It is a very charming hotel, and is still decorated with historical furnishings and pictures.  I enjoy staying here every year!
