Located on some of the most beautiful land in Illinois, The Galena Territory is a private, 6,800-acre planned residential, recreational resort community. From the moment you enter The Galena Territory, you know you’ve discovered something special. High, rugged ridges drop to rolling hills, lush woodlands protect an abundance of wildlife, sparkling streams cascade into Lake Galena and open meadows roll out a carpet of wildflowers. The spectacular terrain in The Galena Territory is one of the most unique areas in the state because it was not leveled by ancient glaciers, thus the rugged region harbors rare plant and bird species found nowhere else in Illinois.
To preserve its natural beauty, more than a third of the Galena Territory is maintained as natural habitat providing a variety of recreational options that include a 225-acre man-made private lake for fishing and boating and 24 miles of trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. The Galena Territory was designated a Community Wildlife Habitat™ by the National Wildlife Federation in 2010.
Property owners enjoy all this plus the benefits of having the award-winning Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa (best known for its 63 holes of championship golf), right in their own backyards. The resort is open to the general public, but offers special discounts to property owners.
