About Glenwood

Glenwood lies on the western edge of the largest and first Wilderness area in America — the Gila Wilderness. Glenwood is the perfect place to relax, take in some spectacular scenery, enjoy a great meal, visit unique gift shops, and meet friendly, folksy locals.

Plenty of history here too. Billy the Kid and the Wild Bunch resided in these parts - so did the Apaches. Visit the old grave site of Cooney — the Calvary officer who started the mining town of Cooney. Geronimo was born just to the east of Glenwood on the headwaters of the Gila.
