Title

SR145 Glass Plant

Description

In 1911, the Piedmont Glass Company purchased and resurrected the old glass plant. During the early years, the plant employed some 125 workers who produced glass bottles for a variety of uses. The plant was closed for two months each summer due to the extreme heat from molten glass. In 1914, the name was changed to the Salem Glass Company.
