The Galesville Heritage Museum exhibits tell the history of Galesville.  The story begins with Native Americans who hunted and fished the West River and later the Quakers who settled here.  As Galesville’s importance as a port grew and as watermen gathered the bounty of rivers and bay, the town grew.  With the coming of steamboats such as the Emma Giles businesses thrived and watermen, craftsmen, storekeepers, and business people built a vibrant village life centered in churches, schools, and town hall.
