"A bit remote, small, few amenities"

Galeton is a tiny town with only 141 inhabitants and lies in the upper north part of Colorado. There are no real amenities in this town and since it is so small there are no schools outside of an elementary. The elementary gets about average marks when it comes to state testing standards. Once the kids are done with elementary, they transfer to the schools in Eaton which are only about 10 minutes away. Eaton is also where residents of Galeton can eat out and do a little shopping, although not much as Eaton only has a population of about 4,700. The closest, decent sized town is Greeley which is about 20 minutes to city limits.

The homes in Galeton are mostly very small, single family homes. As you drive through town they seem a bit close considering how much land surrounds the place. There are also a fair share of mobile homes. As with many smaller towns, the median household income here is below state average, but so are the housing prices.
