Green River Lock and Dam 5 is located at Glenmore. The dam was completed circa 1900, but the lock has not been in use since about 1965 when Lock and Dam 4 downstream at Woodbury failed. The upstream Lock and Dam 6 was located at Brownsville.
The Massey Springs Resort
Downstream from Glenmore was the Massey Springs Resort. It was established at a natural mineral spring in the 1890s by James Massey with most visitors travelling by river. The original small hotel burned circa 1905 and new owners built a three-story, 40-room hotel that operated until 1915. Very little remains now.
