Find A Home For Mechanical Marvels
Finding a Home for Mechanical Marvels is the third and final part of this broadcast series with Wellsboro Glass Plant’s Ribbon Machine Mechanic Ryan Root.
In the video, you’ll see a sneak peek into the Wellsboro glass factory where Ryan worked for over twenty years. Out of his years at the factory came his passion for keeping the glass history alive for future generations to come and see. Hence, the Wellsboro Glass Historical Association non-profit was established to bring others along to help this vision become a reality. This non-profit that Ryan, a board member, is a part of collects, stores, and catalogs the historical glass and creates a future space for a museum. Other board members are Skip Cavanaugh, Clare Ritter, Anja Stam, Tracey and Josh Fox, Tom Reindl, and Ellen Bryant. The board members and others have been working diligently to gather the funds to make the glass museum more than a dream but a reality for future generations.
Ryan commented in the video that he thinks the ideal place for the museum is the old glass factory in Wellsboro, where he walks around in the video so you can get a glimpse of what he is sharing. Every ribbon machine was made in Wellsboro and sent worldwide to make glass. Home Page cameras took a tour so we, too, could understand his desire for the old glass factory for the museum.
