Beginnings [1]

Glassport, across the river from Clairton, was named in 1888 when the United States Glass Company established a plant here producing glassware for everyday use. At the time the area was part of the Borough of Port Vue. In 1902 Glassport was broken off and incorporated as an independent municipality.
