About

The Glade Community Historical Society (GCHS) was established on November 5, 2011, to preserve the history of our Arkansas communities. By researching and gathering stories, documents and artifacts, we are preserving the Glade, Pinelog and Garfield communities to enable future generations to understand past contributions to Northwestern Arkansas.

News

The next GCHS quarterly meeting is scheduled at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 24, at the Glade Post Office on Slate Gap Rd.  The meeting is open to everyone for a tour of the post office and the Coal Gap School.  Come join us for music and ice cream!
