This town was born along the tracks of the Great Northern Railroad in 1887. It was named after Glasgow, Scotland, by the numerous Scots that came to work on the railroad. As you come into town from the west, watch for the large sculptures on the left. You’ll see more than one dinosaur, a bear, a coyote, and an eagle. The sculptures were locally hand-crafted by Buck Samuelson and donated to the community. If you’ve ever wondered what people do here in the winter, one guess would be that they play a popular card game called whist—just as residents have since the homesteading days. Glasgow claims to be the whist capital of the world, bringing in international contestants for a two-day tournament in November and also in late January. This eTrail provides detailed information on family-friendly things to do. The destinations include: Valley County Pioneer Museum and Bundy Park, Candy Cane Park, Baker's Jewelry, Hoyt Park and the Glasgow Civic Center, and Alumni Park.
