Welcome to Glencoe, Alabama!

Glencoe holds a special recognition among Alabama communities as a “City of Patriotism” designated by Governor Bob Riley in September 2003.  This title was given by the state legislature in expressing their immense gratitude for the city’s outstanding display of patriotism.  Each year on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veteran’s Day the City of Glencoe and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Organization recognize and honor, through ceremony, 187 servicemen and women from Glencoe who served in the Military and fought in foreign wars such as WWI, WWII, Vietnam, and Korea.  The ceremony is performed by displaying 187 flags with crosses bearing the names of those men and women who defended and preserved our nation before their passing.

Residential growth is on the rise in Glencoe with new subdivisions offering a wide range of housing opportunities. We offer our residents a safe, friendly community in which they can work, live, and play. Please visit Glencoe, a “City Of Patriotism” soon!

To The Citizens of Glencoe,

  One of the hardest things as a Christian was to remove the Christian flag which flew above City Hall, but the letters received from the Freedom From Religion Foundation concerning our Nativity Scene and Christian Flag was threatening the city with a law suit. On our attorneys advice we removed the flag to avoid a costly battle that we could not win. Thank the Lord for the 20 years that we had to fly the Christian Flag in our City. This is not the United States that we had 20 years ago. I am working on different options for the city at this time. I hope that through this battle we are going to bring this community together and although we may lose this battle we will not lose the war. Through it all the flag came down but they cannot take Jesus out of the hearts of the citizens. Please pray for us!


Charles Gilchrist

Mayor of Glencoe
