Bring West Virginia’s heritage into your home.


In 1896 Seneca Glass Company relocated from Fostoria, Ohio, to Morgantown, West Virginia, where it operated until 1983. At one time, it was the largest producer of drinking glasses in the United States. Early on it was known for its fine quality decorative and etched glassware, but in the 1950s Seneca launched more casual patterns. Today, Seneca Glass is highly collectible. Here are a few examples of Seneca glassware that can still be seen in displays at the old factory site, now called the Seneca Center on Beechurst Avenue in Morgantown.
