Galesburg Historic Church Tour
Galesburg’s history is directly tied to the many church congregations that began in the 1800’s. Most of these churches are located downtown and represent the spirit of commitment our early settlers had in establishing Galesburg as viable community. The church architecture is also a testament to the devotion these people had to making life in Galesburg a rich experience. Today, many of these downtown churches are used by local fine arts groups for performances and concerts.
