Well, Galena, IL brick is kind of known for being crumbly. I live in an 1854 house made of it. We're about 3000, and a tourist place.

I know your Galena is a tourist place....seen a few pics....very nice!!

1854.....wow!! I love older houses......they have class. The only problem is just what you said....the brick is soft. I owned a house built in 1898 but it was frame and not brick.....I tore it apart when I was 26 and finished at the age of 28. I did everything but the roofing...... Too steep for me....yikes!!
