A belated photo this week, from Galena, IL. ¬†Main Street in Galena is one of the best-preserved and beautiful in all the Mississippi Valley. This classic American river town is in part well-preserved because the river itself moved. Now, a regional destination for weekend getaways and more, Galena is worth a stop on anyone’s journey in the Upper Mississippi.

    Great photograph. Galena was celebrated as the exemplar of a great American Main Street in the book Collage City by Colin Rowe and Fred Koetter.
