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 Galena Territory's 6,800 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.
Property owners in the low-density, planned residential community collectively own 1,900 acres of recreational amenities in addition to their own properties. These include 24 miles of walking/hiking trails, Lake Galena for boating and outstanding fishing, a marina complex, an equestrian center, and a state-of-the-art pool/recreation complex. Property owners also can enjoy 63 holes of championship golf and award-winning restaurants at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa located right in their own backyards. The resort is open to the general public and offers special discounts to property owners in The Galena Territory.
