Welcome

   Located on some of the most beautiful land in Illinois. The Galena Territory is a private, 6,800-acre planned residential, recreational resort community. From the moment you enter The Galena Territory you know you’ve discovered something special. High, rugged
ridges drop to rolling hills, lush woodlands protect an abundance of wildlife, sparkling streams cascade into Lake Galena and open meadows roll out a carpet of wildflowers. The spectacular terrain in The Galena Territory is one of the most unique areas in the state because it was not leveled by ancient glaciers, thus the rugged region harbors rare plant and bird species found nowhere else in Illinois. 
   To preserve its natural beauty, more than a third on The Galena Territory is maintained as natural habitat providing a variety of recreational options that include a 225-acre man-made private lake for fishing and boating and 24 miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding.
   Property owners enjoy all this plus the benefits of having the award-winning Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa (best known for its 63 holes of championship golf), right in their own backyards.

Scholarships available

The “Lend a Hand” College Scholarship is for students who live in the school districts Galena, River Ridge, and Scales Mound.

We would like to invite students in these districts to apply for a Galena Territory Foundation “Lend a Hand” College Scholarship. The homeowners of The Galena Territory Association have established this foundation and scholarship for the purpose of helping these students afford the cost of obtaining a college degree. As property owners in The Galena Territory, we are keenly interested in the opportunity to “Lend a Hand” through providing a limited number of scholarships to students who reside in these districts.

We truly hope that the efforts of the Galena Territory Foundation will help add strength to the fabric of our community, and will enable the young people of our school districts to enjoy success in their educational growth after high school.

The future of any community is based on the participation we can all offer by our willingness to “Lend a Hand”.  More info...
