The Glasgow area was inhabited for many years by the Nekota, Lakota, and Dakota Tribes. Lewis and Clark traveled within about 15 miles of the future town of Glasgow. Glasgow was established in 1887 as a railroad town and was named after Glasgow, Scotland probably by an employee of the railroad pointing to a spot on the globe as were many of the towns along this part of the railway. Glasgow is the county seat of Valley County.
