The town of Glazier was founded in 1887 when the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway reached this site. Because of its location north of the Canadian River, Glazier was an ideal shipping point for area cattle, even when flooding made the river impassable. A post office was established in Glazier in 1906. In 1916, a fire which started in a feed mill virtually destroyed the town's business district. A tornado claimed twelve lives in 1947, delivering another major blow to the small town. The earliest known burials in Glazier Cemetery were made in 1906. The Glazier Cemetery Association purchased 2.4 acres from J.F. Johnson in 1910 for the price of twenty-five dollars.
