The building housing the Glasgow Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was given to the city in 1976. The Gothic Revival building, originally a Baptist church, was constructed in 1861. When the Baptist built a new home across the street, they gave the building to the Presbyterians, whose church was destroyed during the Battle of Glasgow in 1864.
The upper floor of the museum has been maintained as a period room with most of the furnishings coming from the 1860's. A slave balcony with an exterior entrance is a clear example of the buildings ante-bellum construction.
The stained glass windows were installed in 1913.
Come visit and enjoy the collection of the Battle of Glasgow & Civil War artifacts and memorabilia.
