“Everybody in Glade and Coal Gap Community was rich; they didn’t have no money, but they was rich. They were rich in other things. It was a good life. If a neighbor got in trouble, there was somebody
there to help him.”

Did you know that at one time Glade

was actually incorporated? 

"We are now ready since we met and incorporated our little town with a population of 41. Election of officers as follows: S. L. McGinnis, merchant; Morgan Morrison, blacksmith; J. V. Lee, carpenter; Scot Whitney, mayor; Adam Ash, police; Harmon Williams, magistrate;

G. S. Hyden, nightwatch."

Almost one hundred years ago!
