Glasford is a village in Peoria County, Illinois, United States. The population was 1,076 at the 2000 census. Glasford is part of the Peoria, Illinois Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Geography

Glasford is located at coor dms|40|34|18|N|89|48|46|W|city (40.571714, -89.812707).GR|1

According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 0.9 square miles (2.3 km²), all of it land.

Glasford is located near the "Glasford Disturbance", an area in which the normal layering of the bedrock has been highly disturbed. This is believed to be an ancient meteor crater. The impact fractured the bedrock, and upended large blocks of sedimentary rocks. The crater has been completely filled by glacial action, so that no trace appears on the surface.
