Greeley is located on State Highway 38, 13 miles northeast of Manchester. Cedar Rapids, Dubuque and Waterloo are within a 65 mile radius of Greeley. Greeley was so named in 1863 by Samuel Lough in honor of Horace Greeley. The town’s claim to fame started with the Holbert Horse Importing Company, established in 1878. Holbert farms were renowned for horse selling and breeding in Europe, Canada and the US. The last man to work for Holbert farms was R. M. “Bob” Brady. Bob’s sons Walt and Don became famous in their own right as horse handlers and drivers for the world famous Budweiser Clydesdale Hitch. In 1987, Anheiser-Busch honored the Brady brothers by donating a life size replica of “Pete” one of the horses Walt and Don worked with. The memorial stature stands on Front Street (Highway 38) in Greeley.

Businesses in Greeley include Community Savings Bank, Gary’s Feed Store and Eastern Iowa Milling.
