Welcome to Glassboro

Glassboro is a community steeped in history. Glassboro was known as the Glass Works in the Woods or Glass House until the beginning of the nineteenth century. The Stanger brothers owned and operated the Stranger Glassworks. The Whitney brothers took over the operation, renaming it the Whitney Brothers Glassworks. During its peak in the 1870's the glassworks was one of the largest and most prosperous glass factory operations in New Jersey. The Glassworks continued to be successful until the Owens-Illinois Glass Company opened in 1918.
