Actually the town came after the name. Prior to the Ida Glenn oil well coming-in the area was called "Glenn" after the family who lived in the area. When the Ida Glenn came-in the area and the field was called "The Glen Pool" - however, due to commonly running the words together "Glenpool" became the name. The town was established after the name was in common usage. Today the town has a sign at each end of town on the highway that reads "The Town That Put Tulsa On The Map".
