FAGCA's special tour of the factory on August 4, 2016 was to include a small companion booklet for review during the tour. Unfortunately, we were unable to put this booklet together in time for the tour. We are thrilled our attendance exceeded the numbers we were expecting, but this caused some members to go home without this little momento. Please feel free to view the booklet below, in photgraphic form. Excerpts taken from "Fenton Glass: The 2nd 25 Years" and "Fenton Glass: The 3rd 25 Years" both by William Heacock and "The Fenton Story of Glass Making" by Alan Linn.
