About

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 earth-fill 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.
