Glass History Step back in time and visit historic, Seneca County, where history sparkles. As Tiffin and Fostoria were developing during the 1800’s, natural gas was discovered in abundance. It was this discovery that brought many manufacturers to the area and made both towns ideal locations for glass production. Fostoria had 13 different glass factories at various times from 1887-1921. In 1887, the famous Fostoria Glass Company was founded and was in existence in Fostoria until the natural gas deposits ran out. In the neighboring town of Tiffin, Beatty Glass Factory opened in 1889 and was capable of producing 500,000 pressed pieces of glass in one week. Later the company was purchased by US Glass and continued to be an important part of the town. In 1984, the famous Tiffin Glass Factory closed. Fortunately, the tradition of glassmaking is kept alive at Crystal Traditions, where visitors can watch glass blowing and crystal hand cutting demonstrations. Experience the glass heritage in Seneca County by visiting the Tiffin Glass Museum, Fostoria Glass Heritage Gallery, Seneca County Museum and Crystal Traditions.
