Although we found mention of Glacier during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Over time, we expect to discover additional information that will be added to our Gazetteer.
One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Glacier. If you can help us locate Glacier, please Contact Us.
We're sorry, but we are unaware of any TripAdvisor Tourism pages for Glacier or the neighboring communities. TripAdvisor is always adding new communities and we suggest that you check with the TripAdvisor website to see if Glacier has been recently added.

|<1>||If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Glacier and then turned east". While Glacier could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Glacier as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.|
Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.
Also keep in mind that Glacier could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.
Since confusion between is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Alaska community named Glacier.
