Glencoe is a small town in South Australia, Australia located approximately 25 km west of Mount Gambier. In its heyday the township was divided into Glencoe and Glencoe West.HistoryFirst established in 1844 by Edward and Robert Leake as a sheep station, the Leake brothers named the settlement after Glen Coe, Scotland where the infamous massacre took place in 1692. Originally from Tasmania, they brought with them the Saxon Merino sheep and in 1863 built the extensive Glencoe Woolshed, which still stands today as it was and now serves as a museum.EconomySurrounding Glencoe are pine tree plantations used in the production of paper pulp and for the supply to sawmills in the area. Sheep and cattle farming is also a strong part of the economy.EducationThe town has one R-7 primary school and one pre-school, Glencoe Central Primary School and Glencoe & District Kindergarten.SportThe single main sporting complex in Glencoe caters for multiple sporting leagues and activities including Australian Rules Football, cricket, netball and tennis.
