Jamestown Glasshouse, Colonial Pkwy, Williamsburg, VA
No visit to Historic Jamestowne is complete without a visit to the Glasshouse. America’s first English industrial manufacture began here with a “trial of glass“.
According to the National Park Service, “one of the first English attempts at industrialization and manufacturing in America was glassblowing.” This replica of a colonial glasshouse allows visitors to get a feel for how artisans produced glass centuries ago. The original structure was built in 1608, when settlers first arrived at the colony.
