Leeds & Grenville Branch – June 2024 Presentation – Mallorytown Glass Works – With Bob Greenhorn and Reg Hunt

Did you know that Mallorytown in Leeds County is the location of the first glassworks in what we now call Canada? In 1839 Amasa Mallory realized the need and market for locally produced glass, and he founded the Mallorytown Glass Works. The factory produced household items such as plates, bowls, jugs, pitchers, jars and bottles.
