The Galena Foundation
The Galena Foundation was formed more than 30 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 finanical support for community projects which preserve, enhance or nurture Galena’s heritage, culture and quality of life.
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.
