A History of Glasgow Court House, North Carolina

Since Glasgow County existed in name for only eight (8) short years (1791 to 1799), there isn't much information available about the county - except for the scandal associated with its namesake James Glasgow, former Secretary of State for North Carolina - that resulted in the county quickly being renamed to Greene County.

From all that can be gathered up, the Glasgow Court House was erected on the south bank of Contentnea Creek in the south-central portion of what is nowadays Greene County. The current County Seat of Greene County, Snow Hill, was established essentially adjacent to, or at least very close to, where the original town of Glasgow Court House had been, and had quickly been renamed to Greene Court House.
