Third Avenue is the main street of historic Glenwood. It’s essentially two streets, running along either side of the the railroad tracks. The commercial area is located on Northeast Third Avenue while Southeast Third Avenue is predominately residential. The two buildings at left in the photo above are both empty shells inside and will be lost if not stabilized. The exteriors are in relatively good shape, though. The structures seen below appear to be in better condition.

    My name is Diane and my some g g g g Grandfather moved to Glenwood in 1793. His name was John Morrison and his wife was Elizabeth Morrison. He is buried in Glenwood. I remember my Aunt saying that some of our relatives had a store there on the corner. I wonder if the J.R. Morrison is that store. She is gone not so I can’t ask her anymore.

    These are still in good shape and remind me of the way “Towns were”
    I hope they will be fully restored.

    some of these buildings just need refurbishing, and then they can be used as office spaces . Or they can be preserved as part of the history of the area. Why is this not being done/????

  4. In 1974 I married a boy from Glenwood…I know every one of these old stores, who owned them and what they were…spent the best part of 20 years living in the area…
