115 S. Bench St.
Galena, Illinois

The Galena Foundation, working in cooperation with the trustees of the Joe Miller Trust and in partnership with the City of Galena, is engaged in a multi-year plan to make Turner Hall more appealing, comfortable and energy efficient.

Improvements include window repair; new fire escape; exterior repair, tuck pointing, waterproofing and painting; interior lighting and wiring upgrades; wood floor repair and refinishing; and more.

Since 1874, Turner Hall has served as a central gathering place for the citizens of Galena—a site for celebrations, performances, campaigns and fundraisers. The upgrades and preservation efforts will ensure Turner Hall remains a centerpiece of the Galena community.
