The Galena Territory Association, Inc.
The Galena Territory is a semi-private, 6,800-acre private recreational and residential lake community located six miles outside the historic city of Galena in Northwest Illinois.
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 31 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.
The Galena Territory boasts 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. MORE
The Galena Territory and Jo Daviess County are found in a unique geographical region called the Driftless Area, referring to the ridges and valleys the glaciers of the Pleistocene Epoch avoided.
The Galena Territory is easily reachable from anywhere in the Midwest without traveling far. Thanks to its beautiful setting and proximity to historic Galena, Illinois, and its boutiques and art galleries, The Territory is both rural and urban at the same time.
