June: Four Months Away from Opening
Summer and warm weather is in full swing in Galena and things are getting really busy at Jail Hill Inn. Carpenters, plumbers and electricians are in the building everyday working floor by floor and old walls are being taken out and new walls are being constructed. In the end, when construction is complete, Jail Hill Inn will have 7 new bedrooms, 9 new bathrooms, 6 sitting rooms, 8 fireplaces, 1 kitchen, 2 laundry rooms, 1 dining room capable of hosting 15 people and three new staircases in 8,000 square feet of renovated space between four floors. Oh, and one really big stone wall outside!
Jail Hill Inn is also excited to announce that the property will be featured in this year’s Historic Tour of Homes in Galena on September 26 and 27, 2015. The property was featured several years back under different ownership and not the entire property. This year, all four floors will be viewable as finishing touches may still be underway as we prepare for the October opening for the business. This will be a great opportunity to tour the property and learn some of the history of the building while seeing all the exciting changes the renovation has created.
