Galesburg, an incorporated city of Neosho county, is located in Centerville township, on the Missouri, Kansas & Texas R. R., 10 miles southwest of Erie, the county seat. It has a bank, telegraph and express offices, and a money order postoffice with two rural routes. The population in 1910 was 183. The land on which the town was located was taken up by a Mr. Tracy for a town company of which the following were the personnel: J. W. Crees, David Bonham, E. Sapp, Levi A. Doan and J. W. Snyder. The first building was erected by William Young. J. W. Snyder built and opened the first store. The postoffice which belongs to this place was at first located at Rose Hill, about a mile south, but when the town was founded in 1871, it was moved to Galesburg. The first school was taught by Miss Parna Whittlesey in the winter of 1871-2, the school being held in the town hall.
