Historical Architecture of Stephenson County

Stephenson County


Stephenson County architecture is as varied as the immigrants that settled our prairies, woodlands and river banks. Fifteen historic homes in Stephenson County are included in a self-guided driving tour. Architectural styles including Gothic Revival, Victorian, Georgian, Federal and more are showcased. Historical and architectural information on each home is included in the tour. The identified homes are private residences and although you are encouraged to stop in front of the homes and look at the wonderful architecture, we ask that visitors do not trespass on their property, and the interiors are not open for touring. Order a tour booklet by calling the Freeport/Stephenson County Visitors Bureau at 815-233-1357 or 800-369-2955.
