Before Pittsburgh became the Steel City, the region was known for glass manufacturing.
Just 30 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, Jeannette was once home to several glass plants and was known as “Glass City.”
Jeannette Specialty Glass has remained in business since 1904.
“This little town used to be a big bustling town. It used to have seven glass factories here,” said CEO Kathleen Sarniak-Tanzola. “I’m the only one left.”
