Findlay has a wonderfully interesting history when it comes to glass.

Author and local historian Quentin Skrabec wrote a book titled GLASS IN NORTHWEST OHIO:

"The discovery of natural gas around Findlay in 1886 started an industrial rush in northwest Ohio. Within five years, over 100 glass companies had moved into the region for free gas and railroad connections to the western markets."
