Adams and Company

  Adams and Company (Database Gallery)

(19th to Early 20th Century Glass Manufacturers of Ohio and West Virginia)

Adams & Company Glass Factory

John Adams started in the glass business as an apprentice previous to 1846.

In 1851, Adams opened his own glass factory.  By 1861, it was considered one of the largest glass factories in the Pittsburgh area.

After purchasing the burned out factory site of Challinor and Taylor in 1884, the company merged into the United States Glass Co., otherwise known as U.S. Glass, as "Factory A" in 1891.

In 1892, members of the Adams and Co. partnership who joined U.S. Glass Co. disposed of their stock and withdrew from the glass business.

U.S. Glass Co. continued to operate the factory until the 1930s.
