History: 

In 1860, Neu-Galka was founded by colonists resettling from Galka and Dobrinka. Documents, however, indicate that these colonists had moved there well before 1860.

After the deportation of the Volga Germans in 1941, the settlement was absorbed into the nearby Russian town of Pallasovka and is today a neighborhood of Pallasovka.

Church: 

The congregation in Neu-Galka was part of the Lutheran parish headquartered in Alt-Weimar. A church building was constructed in the colony in 1908.
