Inscription. Apparently named for a commune in the canton of Glarus, Switzerland, it was founded by Peter Staub, native of that locality, and 100 Swiss families who bought land here, on April 11, 1896. Since 1880, normal increases in population and the desire for self-betterment have driven many inhabitants to neighboring cities.
