About Glasgow, KY

Glasgow is centrally located in Barren County, whose founding in 1798 precedes the formal independence of the American nation. Glasgow has its own rich local history of commerce and survival, having revived itself after the Asiatic Cholera epidemic of 1853. Today, it is a city that honors its past, as evident in the historic buildings it maintains, but it also has an eye on the present, with plenty of community resources for education, commerce, and places to shop and dine out.
