Buckeye Glass Company


The Buckeye Glass Company opened in 1878, primarily as a producer of tableware glass.  It was managed by John F. Miller.  Who was latter associated with the Model Flint Glass Company.  Buckeye Glass Company was founded by a wealthy entrepreneur, Henry Helling (who also invested in the Northwood Company). 

Buckeye produced opalescent glass and cased art glass in tableware, night lamps, cruets, syrups and more.  The company began to have financial problems in 1891 and discontinued production of the opalescent glass.  They then concentrated on production of tableware and opaque glass and oil lamps.  They close in February in 1896, mainly due to labor problems and a large fire blamed on arson.
