"One can see rural schoolhouses with windows boarded up, abandoned rai

lroads and coal mines, and now and then a distant church spire towering above an obscure little village which had once been a booming frontier town. Such a village is Galesburg, located north of Pella and five miles east of Reasnor in the southern part of Jasper County. The small cluster of houses scattered about the town square, the garage on the east, and the sole remaining church with its tall

white spire are a mute testimony of the

town's former glory. Elk Creek township was settled several years before Iowa was admitted to the union.

Many of the first settlers were buried in

an old cemetery about two miles southeast of Galesburg on the Galesburg-Pella road. Just north of this cemetery the settlers built their first schoolhouse, a log cabin. A man named L.D. Earp settled o n a farm east of this school. His nephew, Wyatt Earp, who was destined to become a famous Marshall of the old West, stayed with him for a time during the Civil War and attended school in the log schoo l house along with the children of the early settlers...In 1855, Mr. and Mrs. William Burton platted the town of Galesburg."

"One can see rural schoolhouses with windows boarded up, abandoned railroads and coal mines, and now and then a distant church spire towering above an obscure little village which had once been a booming frontier town. Such a village is Galesburg, located north of Pella and five miles east of Reasnor in the southern part of Jasper County. The small cluster of houses scattered about the town square, the garage on the east, and the sole remaining church with its tall white spire are a mute testimony of the

town's former glory. Elk Creek township was settled several years before Iowa was admitted to the union.

Many of the first settlers were buried in an old cemetery about two miles southeast of Galesburg on the Galesburg-Pella road. Just north of this cemetery the settlers built their first schoolhouse, a log cabin. A man named L.D. Earp settled on a farm east of this school. His nephew, Wyatt Earp, who was destined to become a famous Marshall of the old West, stayed with him for a time during the Civil War and attended school in the log school house along with the children of the early settlers...In 1855, Mr. and Mrs. William Burton platted the town of Galesburg."
