Situated in an elegant 1870 Victorian mansion, Glencoe Museum explores the heritage of Radford and the New River Valley. The museum highlights the contributions of Native Americans and early settlers such as Mary Draper, the daughter of Scots Irish immigrants, who was captured by the Shawnee and taken to Ohio. She escaped and walked more than 500 miles to return to her husband, William Ingles. The exhibitions explore industries, and the influence of the river and rail transportation on the settling of the region, and also features an art gallery with rotating exhibits from regional artists.
