Used from 1859 to 1943. About 6.5 miles east of Galena on U.S. 20 is the entrance to Galena Territory on the north side of the road. As you enter, you must turn left (west) for about 2/10 mile to Blackhawk Trace. Turn north and proceed 2 miles to West Wachter Rd, then turn east. Proceed on W. Wachter for.4 mile to North Brodecht Rd and turn south. Proceed 1.1 miles to Heatherdown Ln and turn west. Follow this road for about a mile and the school will be on the right/north side, sitting well back from the road. (Be careful because just before it gets to the school, Heatherdown Ln turns left - straight is Deer Hollow Run.) There is a sign just prior to the school, with a trail to follow back to it. This is also the easiest way when arriving from east of Galena on U.S. 20 from Elizabeth.
