The Town of Glasgow, a Town incorporated in 1892, covers 1.53 square miles of nearly level plain at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, at the confluence of the Maury and James rivers in the southeastern portion of Rockbridge County. Home to 1,046 residents (per the 2000 Census), the Town is bounded on the south by the James River, on the east by the Maury River and on the north and west by Miller and Sallings Mountains.

Due to the continued dry conditions and low relative humidity, Rockbridge County has enacted a ban on all open-air burning, effective immediately, on Friday, October 11, 2019 11:00 AM. This action is being taken after consultation with the Departments of Forestry, both State and Federal, and is an effort to provide for the safety of all of our citizens and their property, as well as for firefighters who are called into service when fires burn out of control. Despite some recent, limited rainfall over portions of the County, dry forests and grasslands are susceptible to the ignition and swift spread of wildfire. The County will monitor weather conditions and will lift the burn ban when conditions improve.
