The French—Scottish derivatives of Glencadia apparently mean a "creek region of simple pleasures."

The hamlet includes a substantial textile mill dating to the 19th Century and a hydro-electric plant. The word "Glencadia" is popular with local businesses and organizations, including the dairy Glencadia Farms, the Glencadia Road and Gun Club, and Glencadia Dog Camp.
