Glassport is a borough in Allegheny CountyPennsylvaniaUnited States, approximately 10 miles (16 km) south of Pittsburgh and the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers where they form the Ohio River. Glassport lies along the east side of the Monongahela River in the "Mon valley", where many blue-collar municipalities have suffered severe economic decline in the wake of the loss of steel-making throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area. In 1910, the population of Glassport was 5,540. By 1940, it had risen to 8,748, but has since declined to 4,483 as of the 2010 census.

History

 

 


Before Glassport was its own borough, the territory was part of Elizabeth Twp., then of Lincoln Twp., then Port Vue, PA. In 1902, it became its own separate municipality, comprising 1.52 square miles.

The town was built around a mill called The United States Glass Co., that chose that site in 1894. The factory came to be known as “the Glass House”. Other industries soon followed. The area was originally laid out in a plot plan by the Glassport Land Co., a subsidiary of the United States Glass Co.

Glassport received its name after the Glassport Land Company.

The United States Glass Company was located near the Monongahela River on Seventh Street. The company specialized in "pressed glass," tableware, and other glass products made from molds. Unfortunately, in 1963 the United States Glass Company was damaged by a tornado, and their 80-foot water tower collapsed through the building's roof. When the high winds did this, all the furnaces shut down and the liquid glass cooled and hardened. Afterwards there was left a 250-ton block of solid glass, making any plans to re-build too costly.

Former pro football player George Hays (American football) was born in Glassport.
