The imposing columns at the head of Chambers Street is a wonderful relic of Galesburg's early years. Local legend says that the basement of the house was used as a station on the "underground railroad", hiding runaway slaves on their way north to freedom. Referred to as "The Great House", it now serves as a bed and breakfast inn.
