House that Glass Built -
For a century Toledo has been known as the “Glass City” due to the importance of Toledo as the center of America’s Glass Industry. The influence of glass extended not only to employment and economics of Northwest Ohio, but also to the culture and civic pride of the community. The power of this influence can still be experienced at the Toledo Museum of Art and the new Glass Pavilion.
Explore the glass manufacturing industry, the studio glass movement and the remarkable history of philanthropy that put Toledo on the map.
