Galesburg Facts

Galesburg is a city in Kalamazoo County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 1,988 at the 2000 census.

Galesburg is on the north side of the Kalamazoo River on the boundary between Comstock Charter Township on the west and Charleston Township on the east, but is politically independent of both. The city is situated on M-96 and is just north of I-94 (with exits due south of the city’s west side and about one mile to the east). Kalamazoo is about ten miles to the west and Battle Creek is about ten miles to the east.

Galesburg has two trailer parks and a motor-sport complex, the Galesburg Speedway. One of the parks is close to the speedway; the school bus figure eight races are so loud the residents cannot think.

For statistical purposes, the Census Bureau has defined Greater Galesburg as a census-designated place consisting of the urbanized area outside the city’s municipal boundaries.
