Galloway

Galloway (Gallaway), on Farm Road 31 seventeen miles southeast of Carthage in southeastern Panola County, was established soon after the Civil War. A school that began operating there in the early 1880s had an enrollment of thirty in 1897. In the mid-1930s Galloway had a school, a church, a store, and a number of houses. After World War II its school was consolidated with the Carthage schools, but in the mid-1960s the community still had a church, a community center, and several businesses. In 1990 Galloway was a dispersed rural community with an estimated population of seventy-one. The population remained the same in 2000.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
