1895: Map of Glass Factories

photo credit:  McKean County Historical Society

This is an excellent view of the four major glass factories in the town of Smethport.  Also it shows the main streets and side streets as well.  If you look at the map, you will see four boxes, which are the four glass factories.  The Green Box is Hilton Glass Company, the Tan Box is the Smethport Cut Glass Works, the Blue Box is the Camp Glass Factory, and the Red Box is the Berney Bond Glass Company.  The areas now are Mrs. McBride's home on Hilton Avenue (Hilton Glass), Backus/Chef Specialties (Cut Glass), Jubilee (Camp Glass), and the Fire Department (Berney Bond Glass).
