Dorflinger Glass Museum
Welcome to the Dorflinger Glass Museum, or as it is more broadly known, Dorflinger - Suydam. Located in White Mills, Pennslyvania, this attraction is a Wildlife Sanctuary, Glass Museum, and host of popular annual Wildflower Music Festival. Historic White Mills also sits on this property.
Start your visit at the Dorflinger Glass Museum, home to the nation's largest collection of Dorlinger glass. In the 1860s Christian Dorflinger transformed this sleepy town into a busy industrial center with his booming Glass Works business, which made fine tables and the like, many of them even used within the White House. The museum displays over 1,000 pieces of cut, engraved, etched, gilded, and enameled crystal, all made between 1852 and 1921. Before you leave check out the gift shop, filled with glass jewelry, handcrafted ornaments, paperweights, and more.
After you've explored all the glass head outside to Wildlife Sanctuary, which is dedicated to preserving 600 acres of northeastern Pennslyvania woodlands and open spaces. You will see majestic pines and local flowers as you walk any of the many miles of well-maintained trails, which 'clear the mind and refresh the soul'.
If you are visiting during the summer months you may happen to catch the popular Wildflower Music Festival, boasting fine local classic, jazz, folk, and bluegrass music.
