The Glass of New England 1818-1888. The glass industry was attracted to New England for many of the same reasons it was attracted to other locations throughout history; access to natural fuel resources, availability to world marketplaces, and a ready work force. Of the many glass houses in New England in the early to mid-1800s, two of the best known were The New England Glass Company (NEGC) and The Boston and Sandwich Glass Company. The New England Glass Company was located in the Cambridge area of Boston, which would later cause confusion with Cambridge, OH glass works.
