In 1889 a group of men founded a company not knowing whether it would survive or be just another investment gone sour. Today we know that company, which produced it's wonderful glass for nearly 100 years, as Westmoreland Glass Company of Grapeville, Pennsylvania. Just imagine how proud those men would feel if they were with us now. Those men didn't just start a company. They touched all of our lives by giving us the beautiful handmade glassware we all collect and cherish.
On October 7, 1969 a group of Westmoreland Glass collectors gathered and founded what is now the National Westmoreland Glass Collectors Club. The main goal of the NWGCC is to enrich and preserve the history and glass of that company through a bi-monthly newsletter and meeting where members can share information. By expanding our knowledge and educating all those who are interested we will be able to keep Westmoreland Glass alive through our collections and in our hearts. We invite you to join us in continuing where the founders of that company left off.
The mission of the National Westmoreland Glass Collectors Club is to promote the appreciation for the artistry and craftsmanship of Westmoreland glass and to continue the preservation of this important part of American history.
