The Other Glasgow
Glasgow, Kentucky, may be in the Southern United States but it does have something in common with Glasgow, Scotland: the Scottish Highland Games. This joyous celebration of Scottish sport, including the caber toss, brings a bit of the brogue to southern Kentucky. One way the stateside Glasgow differs from the Glasgow of the United Kingdom is that up until recently, Glasgow, Kentucky, didn’t allow restaurants to sell alcohol. Don’t worry, though; it’s now legal to have a glass of bourbon with your dinner.
Glasgow may not be on the cutting edge, but some folks appreciate this town’s charm and simple ways. Why fix what isn’t broken?

2 out of 3 Glaswegians Agree: Glasgow's Good for Thee
You know who likes Glasgow, Kentucky? You'll never guess. Progressive Farmer Magazine in declared Barren County (which Glasgow is a part of) one of the best places to be if you're a progressive farmer. (Barren is a bit of a misnomer.) Whether or not you’re a progressive farmer yourself, the benefits of having well-tended farms in the area (many of which have organic produce) are obvious. Farmers’ Market, anyone?
If you love TV and hate paying taxes, Glasgow is the place to be. In the mid-1990s, this town began providing its own high quality cable access. This has managed to save the local taxpayers over $32 million. How? Read this report to find out.
Residents of this rural locale who are eager to get their book learnin' on, (not everyone can be a progressive farmer) will be happy to hear that an extension of Western Kentucky University can be found right in town.
Finding Something to Do
If you’re a fan of live theater, you’re in luck. The somewhat misnamed Glasgow Summer Theater puts up a variety of shows throughout the year. The Glasgow Summer Theater performers can usually be found gracing the stage of the Plaza Theater. Find out more about all the performances that come through the Plaza Theater and take note of the stand-up comedy performances. Kentucky sure does like to get its chuckle on!
The Mary Wood Weldon Library, another hotspot in town, does far more than lend out books to introverted fans of the printed word. In fact, this library transforms into a nightclub once the sun goes down! Okay there isn’t any alcohol and there is a family friendly vibe, but it’s still the place to go for nighttime entertainment. There are movie nights, clubs, shows, and ""Tator Tot Time,"" which is a lot of fun for little kids (there are rhymes, songs, and finger plays!).
Making the Move
Glasgow's mayor, Rhonda Trautman, welcomes you with open arms and a smile. She has this to say: ""Whether as a visitor, newcomer or a long-time resident I'm confident you will find Glasgow a great place to work, visit, live and do business.""
Come for the kilts. Stay for the community.
The South Central Kentucky Cultural Center is host to a magnificently magnificent array of exhibits of, by, and for Kentuckians. Here's a small sample of what you can feast your eyes on, and wash down with your 'noggin.
Round out the above with a round of golf at the Glasgow Golf Course and you're good to go...running around looking for your missing Titleist. For any enterprising young readers, there's a profit opportunity in this. Oh, and keep in mind this place is a country club, so make sure to be sporting your most dapper attire.

Does Glasgow have any famous museums or exhibitions?
While it may not be famous, Glasgow is home to the South Central Kentucky Cultural Center. Housed in the old Kentucky Pants factory in downtown Glasgow, the museum is dedicated to telling the story of the people, places, and events that comprise the region known as the "Barrens." This geographic area includes Metcalfe, Allen, Hart, and Monroe Counties, in addition to Barren County. Nearby Cave City is also home to the Mammoth Cave Wildlife Museum and the Mammoth Cave Wax Museum.
Are there local sporting events in Glasgow?
Glasgow doesn't offer much in the way of local sporting events. However, it's located just southwest of Mammoth Cave National Park, which features camping, hiking, and tours of its subterranean labyrinths. Bowling Green to the west, however, has more options for traditional sport spectating. The Western Kentucky University athletic department fields men's and women's teams that play in the Sun Belt Conference. Some of these teams play at E.A. Diddle Arena, a multi-purpose sports venue with a seating capacity of 7,500 persons located on campus. Bowling Green is also home to the Bowling Green Hot Rods, a minor league baseball team that plays at the Bowling Green Ballpark.
Does Glasgow have a good school system?
Yes, it does. Glasgow is served by two main school districts. The first, Glasgow Independent School District, comprises seven schools serving about 2,000 students. It was rated better than 93.1 percent of school districts in Kentucky and 69.3 percent of school districts in the country. The second, the Barren County School District, was rated better than 72.0 percent of school districts in the state and 43.3 percent of school districts in the nation.
