In the 1960's, a group of Manheim business men decided to start a small glass works that would demonstrate the craft of glassblowing as it may have been carried out in the 1760's from our founding father, henry William Stiegel. Henry William Stiegel is one of the most celebrated artisans in Lancaster County history. The festival of the Red Rose, where Zion Lutheran Church makes payment of one red rose to an heir of Stiegel, continues annually to this day. Museums still honor his memory by exhibiting products of his Manheim Glassworks.Today, a group of dedicated volunteers and business leaders of our community are committed to continuing Stiegel Glassworks 1976. This vision is the batalyst for a dynamic and growing partnership among members of the community, business owners and various local and regional organizations. With these continuing efforts, Stiegel and his town of Manheim will long live in memory and the pages of history.
