Tour The Little-Known Fostoria Glass Museum In West Virginia That’s Filled With Fine Glass

One unexpected yet fascinating component of West Virginia history is glass. Few people realize how many different types of glass and glassware are (or have been) produced in the state. In fact, roughly 400 glassmakers have called West Virginia home since the end of the 19th century, including one known as Fostoria. Have you heard of this line of fine glassware? Whether you have or you haven’t, you’ll want to pay a visit to a museum in Moundsville that honors the Fostoria Glass Company’s legacy with rows upon rows of beautiful, colorful, luxurious glass.
