The Borough of Glendon was incorporated in September 1867, and celebrated their 125th anniversary at Hugh Moore Park in 1992. The first Chief Burgess of Glendon was Joseph Morrison, born in Ireland, who came to Glendon in 1840 from Summit Hill. He was responsible, along with others, for raising the money to build historic Keystone Furnace. Over the years, Glendon had three schools. The first was in back of the Old Thomas Iron Works at Island Park. The second, closed around 1934, sits on the hillside below the Glendon Church and is now a private residence. The third, now Glendon Town Hall, closed in 1959 when Glendon Borough School District became a member of the Wilson Borough School District. Theresa A. Morrison became Glendonís first woman mayor in January 1992.
