A 15-year quest to preserve one of Illinois’ most scenic views came to a successful close in late 2010 when JDCF closed on 100 acres known as the Galena Gateway Park and saved the first view of Galena as seen from Hwy 20 when ‘rounding Horseshoe Mound. This achievement was the result of grants from two private foundations, an outpouring of community support that raised the money needed to apply for these grants, as well the hard work and dedication of countless volunteers since the early 1990’s. JDCF then donated the park to the City of Galena, which will own the site in perpetuity.
