Visited the factory yesterday, went on the tour of the bead making since the original tour of the glassblowing in the factory is no more. The bead tour lasted about 5 min, we watched one man making a bead and a woman painting on misc glass pieces that they have found from scavenging around the old plant, the lady painting is extremely talented. It was very sad to see such a big part of the past come to an end. The tour guide told us that it was nothing to see a thousand people a day come to tour Fenton , then the struggles with the economy hit hard and today there were two of us on the tour. Even though it was short and not a lot to see I was glad to get to see what we did, Fenton is such a large part of American history in art glass.
