The Galka special settlement was created in 1930 as an outpost of the Bogoslovsk forestry concern by dekulakized peasant families from Ukraine and Kuban. Those who died were buried in mass and individual graves in a cemetery at the mouth of the Galka river. The settlement ceased to exist in the mid-1960s, and the cemetery has been abandoned since then.
