Once known only as Siding 45, Glasgow, Montana, was named by a railroad clerk s random finger poke on a spinning globe in 1887. Resourceful land speculators lured its first homesteaders with the promise, Pin your faith in Glasgow and you shall wear diamonds. Successful farmers and cowboys initially made the community an agricultural center and the seat of Valley County. The 1930s drought and depression eras brought hard times, however, before the construction of the New Deal Fort Peck Dam helped reinvigorate Valley County communities. Faithful to their pioneer legacy, the people of the Hi-Line have more recently successfully refocused on long-established agriculture and developing tourism to continue the historic saga of northeast Montana."
