The Galena Foundation

Tucked in the northwest corner of Illinois, Galena is a special place. A town rich in history and natural beauty, Galena is home to original buildings and architectural styles that were constructed well over 100 years ago. 

The Galena Foundation was formed more than 25 years ago by a group of Galenians wishing to preserve Galena and its heritage and history. Today, a nine member board of directors is guided by The Foundation's mission to initiate and/or provide financial support for community projects which preserve, enhance or nurture Galena’s heritage, culture and quality of life.
