WHY YOU’LL LOVE ITGlencoe is a growing community of roughly 5,700 people located sixty miles west of Minneapolis-Saint Paul. Glencoe offers residents and businesses a vibrant community with a growing economy, skilled workforce, strong schools and an excellent health care facility. You will find Glencoe to be a friendly destination with many outdoor recreation options.

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, leaving settlers and businesses to travel many miles by wagon for supplies. Even in these hard times, the first known business in Glencoe was started in 1855.

Residents and visitors alike enjoy many activities in the Glencoe area.  From outdoor recreation to excursions of historical or artistic interest, Glencoe is a family-friendly location. Shop fresh produce at the Farmer’s Market or explore the McLeod Historical Museum. You can even take a relaxing stroll through Glencoe’s Oak Leaf Park & Animal Sanctuary.

The Glencoe community boasts an array of outdoor recreational facilities and public trails.  With an 18-hole public golf course, BMX Park in downtown Glencoe, the Glencoe Aquatic Center located at Oak Leaf Park, and many other charming parks, Glencoe offers many opportunities for outdoor fun.

In the spirit of the early settlers and businesses, Glencoe continues to be characterized by hard-working members of the community, growing businesses and plans for a bright future!
