About Glasstown

Millville was founded in 1802. The Maurice River provided shipping access into the Delaware Bay. Textile mills and glass manufacturing grew along the river and later spread throughout the city. During the late 1980’s and the 1990’s Millville lost nearly 7,500 manufacturing and computer processing jobs. The arts became a catalyst for the downtown area to become revitalized and energize the population of 28,400 citizens.
