The Town of Glasgow Virginia, Chartered on February 29th, 1892, is one of the southern most communities of the Shenandoah Valley located in Rockbridge County. Nestled against the western slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Glasgow is also where the Maury (North) River joins the James River before flowing through the gorge at Balcony falls. The Town spans 1.5 square miles with roughly 1,100 residents calling Glasgow home. The town of Glasgow is a short 8-minute drive to the Natural Bridge State Park and approximately 20 minutes from Historic Downtown Lexington.

Glasgow has the largest employer in Rockbridge County within its limits. Mohawk industries is one of the largest carpet factories in the United States and provides an economic boost for our town, county, and region. The Town is also partnered with the Upper James River Water Trail to better promote and enhance the river experience that we have to offer. The small town is also recognized as an Appalachian Trail Community. Our new Events Pavilion at Locher Field is giving our town the chance to have many more local events including a new concert series starting in 2020. The Glasgow Farmers Market is one of the jewels of our town. The market is managed by the Town, and the volunteers from our local Ruritan club help it succeed.

The town offers natural beauty, outdoor activities, and a down home feel. Our citizens are what make this town thrive and many of our citizens are multigenerational, meaning that their families have settled down here and have no intention of leaving, “Because it is home.” Learn more about our history by visiting the History page of this site
