Dazzling Glass From The Past
 
 
For the perfect finishing touch, enjoy a free visit to the Fenton Museum and Theater.

The history of glassmaking at Fenton and other Upper Ohio Valley factories from 1880 to the present can be viewed in their second floor museums. Breathtaking colors dazzle the eye as the glass sparkles in softly lit cases lining the walls. The Fenton glass museums contain more than 2,000 unusual and rare pieces.

You'll enjoy Fenton glass made from 1907 to the present. It's all there ... the now rare Carnival glass that first made Fenton famous ... exotic colors from the 1920s and great patterns from the 1930s ... opalescent and Hobnail ... and the handpainted glass reflecting the talents of Louise Piper ... to name just a few.

Representative glass of other Ohio Valley companies (Aetna, Beatty, Beaumont, Northwood, LaBelle, Fostoria, New Martinsville, Imperial, Hobbs, Paden City, Riverside, Jefferson and others) is also displayed with items of historical interest.

A 22-minute video on the making of Fenton Glass is shown in the Fenton Art Glass theater at regular times throughout the day.

Museum and theater are open during gift shop hours and admission is free.
