     History
    This factory began operation in 1917 and was owned by Model Window Glass until 1923. Then from 1925 until 1928 the Magnolia Window Glass Company had it's operations here. The history on this place is a little fuzzy switching hands two more times until 1983 when the Southwest Glass Company bought the building. In 2003 they went out of business and this 100,000 sq ft. factory has been laying waste since then.
