Youth Activities
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.
