The History

In 1863, three of the bloodiest battles in the Civil War were fought – Fredericksburg, Chan-cellorsville and Gettysburg. The president was Abraham Lincoln.

Carrollton, itself, was raided by Confederate soldiers who, riding with John Hunt Morgan on a tear through Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio, robbed the bank at Sixth and Highland Streets.

It was also in that year that a young shoemaker named John Glauber started his own business, Glauber’s shoes. The shoe store is now closed but it was one of the oldest stores continually operated for more than a century in the state of Kentucky.

Glauber’s to this day still offers a wide range of work boots from Muck, Timberland Pro and Redwing Shoes. Over the years Glauber’s has expanded its offering to include hunting and shooting products. Glauber’s has everything the modern sportsman is looking for.
