There were 13 Different Glass companies in Fostoria, Ohio during the years 1887-1920. During the boom years of 1887 through about 1892, there were about seven or eight plants at one time operating in Fostoria. The earliest plants were brought to Fostoria because of the large amounts of natural gas that had been discovered the the area. Because of Fostoria's five major railroads and access to free gas, investors found the city an ideal location to build glass plants. The investors, and workers, from West Virginia and Pennsylvania, along with people from other glass areas abroad, came to settle in Fostoria and while here; to manufacture some of the most beautiful glass ever made in America. The Glass Heritage Gallery has chosen to specialize in ten of the companies that made glass in Fostoria.
