Glasgow is a town in Kentucky's Caves and Lakes. Located in the southern Kentucky, Glasgow sits at the entrance to the Western Waterland. Convenient to the sites and attractions of Bowling Green, cave country, and Louisville, Glasgow has a history and charm all its own. Founded in 1799 by a group of Revolutionary War veterans, it boasts historic homes and buildings, museums, a downtown walking/driving tour, and a Civil War fort.
