Linmar Garden is one of Galena's best-kept secrets! This breathtaking 3.5 acre garden overlooks the beautiful historic downtown Galena.
Meander on a guided tour along paths through a collection of plants including hostas, viburnums, conifers, grasses and daylilies on one of 2 daily guided tours at 11 a.m. or 2 p.m.. Vibrant annual and perennial flowers are planted artistically around the inviting grounds. There are 7 water features including flowing brooks, ponds, and a twenty-foot waterfall cascading from a natural bluff.
A replica of a small mine cut into the side of a limestone wall and a sunken garden built in the ruins of one of the first African-American churches in Illinois are among other unexpected delights.
Closed for the season! Will re-open 2017.
