What is The Galena Territory?

The Galena Territory is a semi-private, residential, recreational and resort community located in the northwest corner of the State of Illinois, near the historic city of Galena.  Designed to maximize the rugged terrain of the surrounding area, the Territory's acres boast spectacular vistas, valleys, prairies and woodlands, and harbor rare plant and bird species found nowhere else in Illinois.  With a commitment to protecting and preserving this natural environment, The Galena Territory was designated a Community Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation in 2010
