Those Places Thursday–Webster Family Road Trip: Galena, Illinois - Part 2

This is part of a series of posts dedicated to the immigration story of Debs Webster and his family.

Welcome to Part 2 of my Webster family’s visit to the Historic Ulysses S. Grant Home!  If you missed Part 1, just click HERE to catch up.

We’re finishing up our visit to this historic home with a look at four vintage postcards from my Grandpa Debs’ collection.

Here we have a postcard showing the Library ~

  1. That seems to be a rather fine kitchen. I wonder if the foundation that cares for the house has made any changes since the Websters visited.

    1. Hi Wendy, Thanks so much for stopping by!

      I don't know about any changes per se, but I did find some recent photos of the house online. They were copyrighted, so I couldn't use them in my post.
