Glass Gurus!

A group of out-of-town glass collectors are bringing a bit of foreign flare to the Mid-Ohio Valley.

Twenty one members of the Glass Association in England are on a 10-day tour of glass factories and museums in America.

Monday, that trip brought them straight to Fenton Art Glass in Williamstown.

One English tourist on his second trip to Fenton says he was impressed 20 years ago and he was again this time.

Charles Hajdamach says, "There has been lots of alterations and developments and it's great for me to see that. I think it's one of the greatest factories I've ever been to and that means comparing it to Venice and in Europe and so on and Czechoslovakia."

The group spent the morning touring the glass factory and they spent the afternoon at the Campus Martius Museum in Marietta.

Fenton Factory Tours

Visitors to Fenton Art Glass will find a spacious Gift Shop and a pleasant museum. Free factory tours (M-F 8:15am to 4:00pm) take small groups of guests right out to the factory floor to see glassmaking "up close and personal." Friendly, knowledgeable tour guides explain all aspects of the operation. The Fenton tour has been ranked among the "top 10" factory tours nationwide by USA Today. In addition we have been named Rand McNally Best of the Road for 2006. For a factory tour schedule, click here. For a map, click here.
