Blenko Visitor Center

Blenko Visitor Center

The factory attracts thousands of visitors every year from all over the United States as well as foreign countries. Here they can watch the molten glass take its final form as Blenko craftsmen practice their skilled art. The Visitor Center at Blenko glass features a Designer's Corner of nine leading stained glass windows and the Blenko Museum of historic glass. Marion Blenko (mother of Bill and wife of William Blenko) worked tirelessly to make the blenko gift shop and visitor center a success. When she took over the role, the gift shop or visitor center were not busy and were mundane. She used blenko employees to create a luscious garden with unique plants, a place for rest and relaxation in mist of a busy day. Mr Joel P Myes later designed the "Garden of Glass" which surrounds the garden and a three acre lake.
