Mission accomplished. Kim Keuter from Galena State Bank recently presented a check to The Galena Foundation on behalf of the Joe Miller Trust in the amount of $33,408.69 as its 2014 contribution.
The money will be used to make the final payment --$22,198.84--to the city of Galena for the depot restoration project. The balance will be applied to a matching grant for the Old Market House State Historic Site restoration project in the amount of $10,775 and to the Hess Farm House on Ferry Landing Road, owned by the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation, in the amount of $434.85.
