Glasgow, Missouri
In January 1975, the Presbyterian Church dissolved its membership because those who were left - only 10 - were all elderly people, and there were no prospects for renewing the life of the church. Members wanted to turn over the building and its contents to the City of Glasgow for a museum. The Council accepted the gift. On August 1, 1976, Glasgow's dream of a museum became a reality.

Brimming with the worlds of archeology, cultural anthropology, biology, geology, and paleontology, The Stephens Museum is one of Central’s most prized possessions and the third oldest museum in the state. The Museum originated in 1885 when Central College Curator Lawrence V. (Lon) Stephens gave $5,000 to buy a brick residence on the edge of the college, in which the museum was originally housed.
