Welcome to Abe’s Spring Street Guest House
An artistic bed and breakfast retreat
Stay in historic Galena, IL
Built in 1876, Abe’s Spring Street Guest House was once an icehouse for a prominent Galena brewery, located adjacently, which now is home to Stone House Pottery & Gallery. The icehouse once stored up to 800 tons of ice harvested from the Galena River for the brewery industry. The building has 27-inch thick walls, which in its time was a great insulating factor. Today those thick walls accommodate wonderful window seats for the Bed & Breakfast.
