Glendora is a village in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi. The population was 285 at the 2000 census.

History[edit]

Glendora started as a small sawmill site. Logs were floated down the river from around the vicinity of Webb to be sawn there.

The first settlement developed two miles south of Glendora at Black Bayou. When the railroad was built through the territory in 1883, a station was located there and called Glendora. The town immediately grew. A post office was established and a voting precinct was established. Thus, the inception of Glendora in 1900.

Cane Lake Lumber Company built a large sawmill there which operated until 1909 when it was moved to another site.

In 1955, resident Elmer Kimbrell shot and killed African-American Clinton Melton in front of three witnesses after an argument about how much gas Melton pumped into Kimbrell's car. He was acquitted after a short trial. Shortly before this murder, he was involved in the Emmett Till murder in Money, Mississippi.
