Glen Rose, Texas is the county seat of Somervell County. At last count the population of Glen Rose was 2,122.

Glen Rose rose around a 3 story stone gristmill, built next to the Paluxy River. At that point in time the town was known as Barnard's Mill. Then the mill was sold to a man from Dallas, T.C. Jordan, who's wife was a native of Scotland, who decided to rename the town, Rose Glen. Later, the townfolk voted to reverse the name and call their town Glen Rose.

During Prohibition, Glen Rose became known as the "Whiskey Wood Capital of Texas," due to the Glen Rose area being a moonshine center.
