Ohio glass exhibit photograph
Description: Photograph of an exhibit of early Ohio glass, possibly in the rotunda of the Ohio Statehouse. Since the early nineteenth century glassmaking has been one of the major industries of Ohio, and Ohio glass holds an important place in the development of the industry in the United States. According to Rhea Mansfield Knittle of Ashland, Ohio, whose book "Early American Glass" was published in 1927, the first glass house in Ohio was a Zanesville organized by a group of citizens and incorporated May 13, 1815, as the White Glass Works.
