Comparing Photos Hillsboro Glass / Schram Glass Manufacturing Furnace

I toured Hillsboro Glass this morning with Glenn Mueller former plant manager. Original photo of the glass furnace was taken 108 years ago in 1911. Hillsboro Glass closed in 1997. Thank you to Glenn, Mayor of Schram City and the Attorney representing owners for allowing the tour. 336 photos today and many will match up with the photos taken 108 years ago.
