Glassware Factory Near Jamestown

Jamestown Glassware
Curiously enough, the first industrial enterprise undertaken in America 
was a factory for the manufacture of glass bottles. It was built very early 
in the history of the Virginia colony, and stood about a mile from 
Jamestown in the midst of a woodland tract. Later on, other factories 
were erected, many of them being prompted to manufacture the
 important glass beads to be used in trading with the Indians.
