Meet the InnkeepersFran and Brian are the fifth owners of the Aldrich Guest House, which was one of the first Galena homes converted to a Bed and Breakfast in 1984. They both grew up in Chicago, near Midway Airport, met in high school and were married two years after graduation. They then moved to Berwyn, Illinois, where their three sons were born. A few years later they followed the trend of moving farther away from the city, and made Naperville their home for 26 years. Coming to Galena was a huge change for them, and they fell in love with the town. They have been here over six years and have been privileged to meet so many interesting people from all walks of life, many of whom have become friends. They continue to discover more of Galena's history and the surrounding countryside. One of their biggest joys happened in 2013 when they became grandparents for the first time. Having the flexibility that they do, they can return to Chicago and be with their little guy, making memories. Here at the Aldrich Guest House Bed & Breakfast, you will arrive as guests, and leave as friends. It's the Galena way!
