About the Seneca Glass Company

The Seneca Glass Company was founded by a group of immigrant German glassblowers. Natives of the district of Baden in southern Germany, many of these men had previously been employed at the North Cumberland Glass Company in Cumberland, Maryland. In 1891, they met in Cumberland to form their own corporation and subsequently purchased, for $10,000, the plant of the Fostoria Glass Company, at Fostoria, Ohio (Fostoria Glass moving to Moundsville, West Virginia).

The new company flourished from the beginning but was soon faced with the threat of a fuel shortage. In 1896, the directors decided to relocate their plant near a plentiful supply of natural gas and decided upon Morgantown. The new plant began production in January 1897.

Seneca Glass produced some of the finest hand blown, hand-cut and etched, lead crystal in the world, as well as being one of the oldest factories of its kind in America using the centuries-old technology. When the firm closed its doors, in August 1983, a nearly one-hundred-year old tradition ended.
