- Holiday Types
The City of Galena is located in the unglaciated area of Northwest Illinois. Our rolling hills, history, 19th century architecture and opportunities for year round outdoor recreation attract nearly a million visitors a year.
Often referred to as “The Town that Time Forgot,” many of the buildings in Galena are brick and/or stone. In the 1850s, during the town’s early boom, a series of fires threatened the city’s core, and city officials passed regulations prohibiting new construction made of wood. What began as a movement in self-preservation has now moved to a modern focus on historic preservation. Many of these buildings, reflecting a variety of architectural styles, have stood the test of time, and now stringent rules continue to govern the Historic District of Galena to vigilantly preserve history.
