Can anyone tell me where exactly Winslow Glass Works was located in the 1800's? Thanks for any info!

The best information I have is from an old plat map that showed that the glass works were located in the village of Winslow, at the end of Hay St where is meets Hall St. The plat map shows the location to be on the southern side of Hall St right where Hay St ends in Winslow. On the old plat map, Hay St ends when it meets Hall St. Current maps now show Hay St extending through Hall St. If I had to guesstimate, the glass works use to be in the area where Blocks 7405 & 7403 are on the tax maps, which is down the street from the Winslow Methodist Church & Cemetery.

I hope this helps.

The Winslow Glass Works may have been the location for the First Artesian Well drilled sucessfully in South Jersey. The well was drilled some 335 feet into what is known today as the Piney Point Aquifer. Interestingly, when Atlantic City was exploring for water supply on the island it was this same aquifer they were seeking. The Piney Point Aquifer draws water from a green or glauconite quartz sand. Atlantic City in drilling for the Piney Point (same aquifer as the Winslow Glass Works) found another aquifer called today the Atlantic City 800 foot sand in the late 1800's. So Winslow Glass Works and Atlantic City are related, somewhat!
