Representatives from the National Greentown Glass Association met with
16 youth from grades 2 - 8 on Saturday, March 19, at the History Center.
After learning about the history of the Greentown Glass Factory, they
searched through buckets of shards for patterns and colors.
A few examples of Greentown glassware were brought by the association
members for examination, and the students were able to use them as well
as books on Greentown Glass and the Greentown Glass website to help
them identify from which pieces the shards originated. Adults were
impressed with the interest shown by the youth as well as the knowledge
they had about Greentown Glass.
School groups are encouraged to visit the Greentown Historical
Society. You may contact us at 628-3800 or 628-3565.
