    History in a Pecan Shell

    Settled shortly after the Civil War, it may have been formed by refugees from other Southern states. The community opened a school in the 1880s but by the late 1890s it only had 30 pupils.

    Galloway managed to survive the Great Depression with a store of its own (no population figures available) but when its school (rebuilt as a WPA project) was merged with those in Carthage
    after WWII, any hopes of growth were dashed.

    It has since become a dispersed rural community. The population was given as 71 for the 2000 census.
