The Glass Industry began at Wistar Glass Factory in
Alloway, Salem County. But it really got a boost with the arrival of Jacob
and Catherine Stanger and their seven sons.
The sons worked at Wistar, but soon started Olive Glass Works in
Glassboro. There skill and the pristine sand in the area, brought great notoriety
to the term "South Jersey Glass".
Glassboro, Vineland and Millville were the centers of
the glass industry.
