39 Erie Street, Port Jervis, NY, 845.856.5375
Gillinder Glass was founded 156 years ago by William T. Gillinder. Born and raised in England, William T. relocated to the colonies where he opened his first glass factory in Philadelphia in 1861. In 1876, Gillinder built an operating glass plant in the nation’s Centennial Exhibition, a major component of the first Worlds Fair held in the United States (in Philadelphia). In 1912, his three grandsons purchased a glass plant in Port Jervis, NY, formerly known as the Orange County Flint Glass Works. The plant opened as Gillinder Brothers in January 1913 and continues on this same site today, operated by sixth generation Charlie Gillinder.
