Village of Elsah
Often referred to as "the village where time stood still," get ready to turn back the clock and take a leisurely stroll through the Village of Elsah. Nestled in the bluffs of the Mississippi River, this quaint little village was the first village in its entirety to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. Once an important steamboat landing, Elsah is better known today for its picturesque beauty, stone houses and lush gardens.
Elsah is one of the many treasured stops along the Meeting of the Great Rivers National Scenic Byway. During every season of the year, visitors enjoy traveling back in time as they walk the streets of Elsah to experience the spring blooms, the warm breeze of summer, the crunch of leaves underfoot in the fall and the light dusting of snow upon the ground in the winter. Escape to a simpler way of life and prepare to be pampered at one of the delightful bed & breakfast inns.
