The Fostoria, Ohio Glass Association’s Glass Heritage Gallery is dedicated to preserving and illustrating the history of Fostoria, Ohio glass. Fostoria had 13 different plants at various times during the period of 1887-1921. Three made window glass while others produced some of the most beautiful glass manufactured in America. Only two of the original buildings remain: the old Fostoria Glass Co./Seneca Glass plant and the Fostoria Incandescent Lamp plant. Both house other businesses.

Most of the 1,000 pieces of glass in the Gallery are on loan from over 100 collectors. Most items are over 110 years old. Each glass case has signage designating the manufacturer and the name or number of the pattern.
