Muse is located in southwestern Glades County and was largely homesteaded in the early days of the century. The beauty of the natural woodland has attracted many newcomers, building homes in this rural area.  Muse is home to the new K-8 West Glades School. The community has its own volunteer fire department and an active community association that  recently cut the ribbon on their new meeting facility, which can be a hurricane shelter if that need should arise.  Muse is the fastest growing area of  Glades County and the closest community to LaBelle.
