Glidden was founded during the lumbering boom in the early part of the 20th century. It soon became an active center of the lumber trade. Glidden remains a center for many lumbering operations.
Today, Glidden continues to provides a country atmosphere that pervades the good life in and around the community. Businesses of every type prosper in Glidden, including the forest products industry, as well as an excellent pre-K-12 educational system, and the new consolidated Chequamegon School District.
Marion Park is located in a beautiful wooded setting of 20 acres. The park also has a baseball field, a playground for young children and hosts the Glidden Community Fair every Labor Day weekend. Located in the park, is the Marion Park Pavilion. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Pavilion is a domed building and at one time was the largest wood domed building in Wisconsin without a center support. Other parks for picnicking, camping, nature studies and outdoor recreation dot the area as well as many hiking trails in the National Forest.
Autumn leaves become the photographer’s paradise when the splendid “colorama” season is in full glory. Miles of Forest Roads are available for scenic drives not the least of which is the “Natural Scenic Byway” from Glidden to Clam Lake, located within the Chequamegon National Forest. The Northern Continental Divide is marked by a large sign a few miles north of Glidden. Here the north flowing waters run to the Gulf of St Lawrence and on to the Atlantic Ocean while streams south of the divide flow to eventually reach the Gulf of Mexico.
The Glidden area is accessible by National and State Highway systems. Visit Glidden for seasonal recreation, retirement living on a modest budget and hunting and fishing opportunities. Best of all, it’s a great place to raise a family.
