About Us
The American Farmhouse is as much of a feeling as it is a style. It's easy and casual, relaxed and simple. It is organic and has that "hand-me-down", collected over time and well-loved feeling. The American Farmhouse reflects your heart and soul.

The American Farmhouse is located in the heart of farm country. We have collected farmhouse antiques over the span of 30 years. We find our soul in the hills where we live and note that these treasures speak to a simpler time. These remind us of an era where things were honest, practical and straightforward. Farmhouse interiors were functional with a touch of whimsy. These items were frequently hand made for form and function and often with a nod to nature's bounty.

In addition to our rich farming heritage, our community is truly like stepping back in time. Eighty-five percent of Galena's buildings are in a National Register Historic District. Even the scenic beautify of the surrounding hills and valleys is a testament to being untouched by time. In the 1800s we were the busiest Mississippi port between St. Paul and St. Louis often boasting as many as fifteen steamboats at a time docked at river's edge. Riverboat Captains, Ulysses S. Grant, Abraham Lincoln, Stephen A. Douglas, Elihu Washburne and many other Civil War Generals walked our streets. Our history is so intact that today we are often referred to as the "town that time forgot".
