About Us

Galeyville was named after John H. Galey, originally a Pennsylvania oil man and then the president of the Texas Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.  The post office was established on January 6, 1881 with a population of about 400.  The town had a smelter that was later moved to Benson.  The mining boom was short and when it died Galeyville became a reputed haven for outlaws such as Curly Bill Brocious and John Ringo who moved there after law and order was established in Tombstone.  They used the surrounding canyons to hold cattle while altering the brands. In 1888 the San Simon Cattle Company forced out squatters, and the remains of the buildings were carried away to construct homes in nearby Paradise.  This was the common practice in the west, moving building from one location to another.

All that remains of Galeyville is a sign that says "Established 1881, Population 400"

Currently at this time we have no photographs or other information.  If you would like to contribute to this page or any other page on our site with photos, etc. we will put your name under the photos.
