Glenwillow, Ohio has developed a multilayered trail and park system along floodplains, regionally significant utilities, industrial history, and new development. Glenwillow has a rich history tied closely to the Austin Powder Company, which closed in 1972. Other landmarks include multiple closed solid waste landfills, the Wheeling & Lake Erie railroad, and large electric transmission lines with a significant substation.
