This hard cover, coffee table book by Todd Gylsen will approach Glenwood history from a unique angle, this book seeks to illustrate the history of Glenwood as seen by tourists.
Looking at Glenwood through the tourist’s eye allows Gylsen to examine the changes in transportation, amenities, businesses, and scenic areas of Glenwood over time. These changes had profound impact on local residents as well as tourists. Glenwood continues to change—and to attract visitors.
It is fascinating to ponder what changes will occur in the next 150 years.
