Landmarks A-Plenty

There are several sites to explore the history of Glasgow, which was officially incorporated in 1878. Among them are 1852 Hall Place Bed & Breakfast, a National Historic Registry accommodations site. It is not just for visitors, as locals can take a peek at the quaint, antique-furnished rooms and learn about the underground cave that formed part of the Underground Railroad network. If you are a Civil War history buff, Fort Williams is a great place to learn about Union railroad defense and also take a contemplative stroll along its fielded grounds. Be sure to check out the public library for any local historical books.

Shops of all Kinds

One of the best things about Glasgow is the diversity of shops in town that cater to any of your interests or needs. There are many antique and specialty stores. These can be fun, but expensive if you are actually looking to shop. Fear not, as Glasgow has more second-hand, consignment, and discount stores than you can count on two hands. A plus is that second-hand and discount items are trendy these days, so do not forget to pair your finds with a new set of shoes from one of the stores on Rogers Wells Boulevard or Happy Valley Road.

Recreation and Explor

Glasgow has a number of parks, nearby points of exploration, and indoors facilities for fun, sport, and recreation of any and all types. Take the kids to American Legion Park for a climb on the play structures or large army tank stationed on its grounds. There is also softball and a 9-hole disc golf course if you want to team up for some competitive fun. When you feel like taking a trip, head over to Historic Diamond Caverns to view its cathedral-like chambers of natural rock formations, as it is next to Mammoth Cave National Park, a World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve.
