Bristol Glass Works



  • Existence: 1813 - 1825


The Bristol Glass, Cotton and Clay Company was incorporated in Ulster County, New York, in 1811 by Stephen Stilwell, Nicholas Van Leuven and Abraham De Witt. In 1813, Stephen Stilwell and his wife Nancy transferred 833 acres of their property in Woodstock to the Company for the Bristol Glass Works factory. Bristol Glass Works produced window glass, clock domes, and simple glass bottles and tableware. Bristol Glass Works operated under that name until 1825 when the New York Crown and Cylinder Glass Manufacturing Company assumed control of the factory.
