For over 125 years, Turner Hall has been playing a part in the lives of residents and visitors to Northwest Illinois. Owned by the City of Galena, Turner Hall is air-conditioned, affordable and available for rental by individuals and organizations for events such as weddings, parties, meetings, concerts, dances, classes, lectures, fundraisers and plays.
The main area of Turner Hall is a large room with a stage at one end and a balcony (with 335 built-in seats) on the other end. As the Hall is a multi-use facility, the main floor does not have built-in seating.
Alcohol is permitted in the Hall, but groups and individuals are required to provide dram insurance that names the City of Galena as co-insured. The cost of the dram insurance varies but tends to run between $100 and $200 for a large wedding reception. You may purchase this insurance through any insurance company you like.
If interested in presenting a music, dance or dramatic performance in the Hall, be sure to check out the stage dimensions and the information about our theatrical lighting system.
