Greeley, an incorporated city of Anderson county, is located on the Missouri Pacific R. R. and the Pottawatomie river 10 miles northeast of Garnett, the county seat. It has a bank, 2 hotels, 4 churches, natural gas for lighting and heating, a flour mill, a number of well-stocked retail stores, express and telegraph offices, and a money order postoffice with two rural routes. The population in 1910 was 492. Greeley is one of the oldest towns of Anderson county, having been settled in 1854. The site was surveyed in 1857, a town company was formed in November of that year and a number of buildings were erected. The first store was opened in the spring of 1858, by B. F. Smith, and about the same time a postoffice was established, which was named after Horace Greeley. The postoffice and whole town was moved to Mount Gilead in 1858, but was later moved back to its original site. There was not much growth until after the war. The town was incorporated as a city of the third class in 1881, and the first officers were: Mayor, Clark Decker; police judge, W. D. Smith; councilmen, J. E. Calvert, J. K. Gardner, A. D. McFadden, A. Kincaid and A. J. Frank.
