The Ohio Glass Museum 124 W. Main St. Lancaster,Ohio reflects the glassmaking industry in Lancaster and Fairfield County.
General Sherman and Senator Ewing welcome you to Lancaster, Ohio and suggest you visit the Ohio Glass Museum. (The history of glass making is fascinating).
Stop by the Gift Shop and check out the “pieces” by Anchor-Hocking, Lancaster Glass, Erickson, Heisey, Fostoria, and Fenton.
Over the years Lancaster,Ohio has been home to more than forty different glass companies.
Learn about glass making technology and check out the educational curriculum.
Yes that is a vault (upper right hand photo). Will that be the future “Treasures of Ohio Room?” The museum is located in what was once a bank and will eventually contain 12,000 square feet .
I hang out with Senator Ewing all day and we both are glad you stopped by for a visit. There is a continuously showing movie called Born of Fire that Joe Todd didn’t take the time to watch so he is just going to have to come back for another visit.
After visiting the museum make sure to have lunch at The Four Reasons Bakery&Deli and don’t forget the carrot cake.
That glass museum sounds so fascinating, Joe. Sounds like something I'd love to visit. Bet I could spend a few dollars there also!!! ha ha
Have a great day/week.

Really interesting, Joe. When I visit places like this I like to buy a Christmas decoration for my tree - that way I get to savour hand-crafted items from many different parts of the world, plus I get a souvenir of my trip and an extra item for my ornament collection!
What a great story Joe!
Interesting post and great shots of the glassware.
Facinating series of shots from your world. Thanks for sharing :-)
Joe, I've always wanted to visit that glass museum while shooting across Ohio on #70 to Russia,Ohio.

Great post. I have a set of sandwich glass dishes from my grandmother that I treasure. While they are not from Ohio, I would enjoy this museum.
Amazing pieces of glass - what a wonderful place and great photos.
I enjoyed looking at these photos. the glass museum looks fascinating. The "pineapple" type ones in the first photo caught my eye, I remember seeing similar ones many years ago.
