Tarentum was known for glass making. The area is still home to PPG’s first plant. Over the past 140 years the town has also been home to 2 bottle companies, three pressed glass companies, and two mirror companies. Pictured  here are pieces produced by the three pressed glass companies: Challinor & Taylor, Richards & Hartley, and Tarentum Glass.
