Historic Interest

The Goldmoor Inn has a proud place in history. In the early 1800s, reportedly the riverboat captains rounding the bend on the Mississippi River near Galena would gaze toward “Signal Point,” the present site of the main inn, to find the fire signaling them to stop for firewood or fuel for their steamboats just up the river. Many years later, a large country home originally built for one of the heirs to the Firestone fortune was purchased by the original property owner who established the Goldmoor estate. The original home has been extensively renovated, enlarged and improved while additional accommodations including two log cabins and three English Cottages are now tucked into the lush landscape and has served guests from near and far for over two decades.
