The Lake Dunmore Glass Factory produced glass intermittently in the early and mid 1800s. It was a great spot to make glass because of nearby access to natural resources needed to make glass. A subsidiary glass factory in East Middlebury made beakers and containers for the Middlebury College Medical School. Today you can still find slag glass and other evidence of the factory on the landscape.
