Located in the upper northeastern corner of Montana, the Glasgow area is rolling plains and open farmland. Established in the late 1800s as a railroad town, Glasgow grew in stature when the Fort Peck Dam was built a few miles south in 1933. One of the world’s oldest and largest hydraulic earthfill dams, Fort Peck Dam stretches over four miles across the Missouri River. The former Glasgow Air Force Base was a centerpiece for the community. The large 13,500-ft. runway and 67 buildings of the base are in good repair.
