For those that are coming through Glasgow, Montana for the first time, it’s immediately apparent that our town is incredibly rich in history. For hundreds of years before the 1887 treaty, members of the Sioux Nation and the Assiniboine people roamed the land. In fact, if you explore the area enough you’ll likely find artifacts from these tribes. Following that, the Valley County was explored by Lewis and Clark, and eventually the town of Glasgow became a popular railway town of the area. People have come and gone for centuries, but one thing remained, the rich history of our town.
