Comments
"I left Glenwood in 1928. When we lived there, the men always tipped their hat to the ladies and stepped to the side. The 'colored', if they had to be in town, not only tipped their hat but stepped off the sidewalk. A sign in town said, 'Nigger, don't let the sun set on you here.' Their town was on the other side of the river." -former resident of Glenwood
