The First Presbyterian Church of Galena, Illinois, is the oldest church building in the Old Northwest Territory still used regularly for services. It was built out of native limestone in 1838 under the leadership of the Rev. Aratus Kent, pioneer churchman and educator, who founded schools and churches all over this territory. The steeple, patterned after the Old South Church in Boston, was added about 1850
