Inscription. Originally known as Eveland's Tavern, the community of Glen Gardner was established in the early to mid 1700's. Early settlement relied heavily upon Spruce Run to power mills and the surrounding mountainside to mine ore. The addition of the Central Railroad through Spruce Run Valley in 1852 brought an increase in population and commercial activity. In 1871, the town was renamed Glen Gardner to honor the Gardner brothers who brought an economic boom to the area with the development of their frame and perforated seat company.
