About Glencoe, MN


Glencoe, named for its resemblance to a valley in Scotland, was the first city to be officially founded by settlers in McLeod County. At that time the nearest known neighbors were thirty miles away, forcing settlers and businesses to travel many miles by wagon for supplies. The first known business in Glencoe was started in 1855, with the construction of the creamery in 1894, the opening of the telephone company in 1897, the beginning of Glencoe Brewing Company in 1901, and the dedication of the Glencoe Library in 1904.
