The mansion bears testament to the wealth and position of one of Galena's leading citizens. Designed by famous architect Andrew Jackson Downing, the home was built in 1855. It contains 7,000 square feet on three floors, and has 9 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and 7 fireplaces. Ceilings on the first floor are 13 feet high and are lit with antique Czechoslovakian crystal chandeliers. The Steamboat House remains virtually unchanged structurally since 1855, and guests still enjoy its spacious parlors, formal dining room, billiard room, and a sprawling, covered front porch.
