Galena!? Not even close. Galena looks like a river town.BKM said:Isn't it that little historic town in Northwestern Illinois settled by the Germans. Darn it. I can't think of the name!
Cornish tin miners??

It's historic Pella, Iowa. First settled by Dutch religious separatists.
Pella Doors and Windows was the first thing to pop into my head after Cardinal's original clue. I guessed Clear Lake because I knew that Pella has a manufacturing plant there. I had no idea there was actually a town of Pella. Looks like a nice place.
