RUTH MAGUIRE SCHOOL OF NURSING 

We now house artifacts from the Ruth Maguire School of Nursing which was located in Martins Ferry, Ohio. Look for them on display this year.

NATIONAL IMPERIAL GLASS

For eighty years Imperial produced a diverse array of hand-crafted glass items. At the onset, production ranged from utilitarian glassware to electric and gas lampshades. Then over the next twenty years the company transitioned to making pressed patterns, Iridescent Ware (early Carnival), Free Hand and Lead Lustre. Depression & Elegant patterns, beverage ware, Cathay and Milk Glass would follow from the 1930's to 1950's. Slag Glass, reissued Carnival, Collectors Crystal,  Peachblow, and numerous gift-type glassware would be made before the company would close its doors in 1984.
