An Online History Book About a Famous Southern New Jersey Town
Photo Gallery Post: Exploring the Contents of the Heritage Glass Museum
My last post discussed the Whitney Brothers Glassworks, and how its owners Thomas and Samuel Whitney controlled Glassboro’s economy with their factory. With the help of the Heritage Glass Museum in Glassboro, I learned about how glass making in the town started. In the end, I aimed to give you, the reader the most information possible.
I can say I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Walking in, I was taken back to yesteryear by the displays of glass pieces that date back to the 1800s. I also saw pieces that are newer, and are made from different factories.
I enjoyed by visit enough to go back for another, and take you the readers along.
This past Wednesday, I went back to the Heritage Glass Museum to take some pictures. I hope you enjoy viewing the different glass pieces.
The museum is filled with historical pieces and artifacts. It’s run by a volunteer club, with members that are always willing to answer questions you may have. If you want to see these pieces in person, take a day off from work or classes and stop in.
The Heritage Glass Museum is located at 23 High St E. in Glassboro, NJ. Hours of operation are Wednesdays from 12-3pm and Saturdays from 11am-2pm.
