While Louis and Clark first explored the area around Glasgow in 1804, the city was not established until the late 1800s when the railroad came. The best place to learn about the town history is at the Valley County Pioneer Museum. It has an amazing collection of fossils and Indian artifacts, as well as the collections on the railroad, wildlife, and aviation. Glasgow’s population and stature grew after the Fort Peck Dam was constructed in 1933.
The four-mile wide dam straddles the Missouri River, and its construction resulted in the creation of Fort Peck Lake, the biggest lake in Montana. Full of fish, the lake hosts Montana’s annual Governor's Cup Walleye Fishing Tournament.
Don’t miss the Fort Peck Dam Interpretive Center and Museum with two larges aquariums showcasing species of fish living in the Missouri River and Fort Peck Lake. The museum also has a life size model of the Tyrannosaurus Rex that was discovered nearby.
Nature lovers should visit the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge, a 1,100,000-acre wild animals refugee, with free-roaming Bugling elk, mule deer, red foxes, coyotes, and thousands of birds.
