It was in 1871 that the American Plate Glass Company was founded to manufacture plate glass using the sand that was discovered in the Plattin Creek which was found to be perfect for making glass. An entire town was built specifically for the glass company workers and their families. The glass manufacturing plant was sold several times but continued to produce glass up until 1991 when it finally shut its doors for good.
