About The Village of Galena Ohio
Galena sits at the confluence of the Little and Big Walnut Creeks, the headwaters of Hoover Reservoir, just north of Columbus, Ohio. Established in 1809 as a milling center, the Village is best known for the Galena Shale Tile and Brick Company which operated from the 1890s until 1983. Galena’s historic New England style downtown still boasts structures built in the 1820s and bustles with restaurant and pub activity today. Galena’s 2010 Census population was 687. Much of the original Village includes older homes, while newer subdivisions began being built in 2005.
