Golf Course Information
For thousands of years, the Kishwaukee River Valley was a very important part of the lives of the Algonquin and Potowatomi Native American tribes. The river itself was used by both tribes to transport goods for trade. The Potowatomi also used the lands here as council grounds and areas for rest and relaxation. The name "Kishwaukee" is derived from the Potowatomi word meaning "River of the Sycamore". The Potowatomi utilized the large sycamores, found along the banks of the river, for their dugout canoes. The river also designates the northern most natural range of the sycamore tree.
Galena became a rapidly growing area, in the late 1820's, when lead began to be mined there. The United States government sent an army, led by General Winfield Scott, to the Northern Illinois area to quell disturbances between the new settlers of Galena and the Potowatomi tribes led by Chief Blackhawk. After the Indian wars of 1833, the Potowatomi were relocated west of the Mississippi river onto Indian reserves in Iowa. This opened up Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin for further settlement.
