Henry Clay Fry
The H. C. Fry Glass Society was formed for the study, preservation of information and appreciation of the glass made at the H. C. Fry Glass Co. in Rochester, Pa. The glass produced was of the finest quality, made by most proficient artisans from the U. S. and Europe. The finished products were shipped worldwide.
Fry Glass Factory
The plant operated from 1901 to around 1933 and it at one time employed nearly 1000 people. Many families in the Beaver Valley area have relatives and friends that were employed by this large factory.
The H. C. Fry Glass Society welcomes persons interested in the study, preservation and appreciation of all the glass made at the H. C. Fry plant from 1901 to early 1930s. The Society meets the first Thursday of each month at 7:30 P. M. Most of the meetings are held at the Beaver Borough Building and notices are in the Beaver County Times newspaper. Our meetings are open to the public and guests are most welcome.
We publish a newsletter, "The Shards," four times a year and have members across the United States and Canada. We do hold conventions, usually every three years.
