THE WORLD’S LARGEST PIECE OF BEACH GLASS AT THE ASHTABULA MARITIME MUSEUM

 

Have you ever heard of “Beach Glass”?

“Beach Glass” is usually very small pieces of glass. “Beach Glass” can be found on almost any beach on the Great Lakes, the Gulf of Mexico and almost any Ocean.  “Beach Glass” is usually dull because the glass has been tossed by waves and badly scratched by being rubbed by the sand.  But it does come in ”DARK or LIGHT COLORS”.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE WORLD’S LARGEST PIECE OF “BEACH GLASS”?

If you go onto your computer and ask what the largest size of “BEACH GLASS’ ever found is, you will see the largest (until recently) was five (5) Pounds.  IN 2017 the largest piece of BEACH GLASS” was found on the beach of Lake Erie between Ashtabula Harbor and Conneaut Harbor, Ohio.

GO TO THE ASHTABULA MARITIME & SURFACE TRANSPORTATION MUSEUM. DISPLAY IS A “275 POUND” PIECE OF “BEACH GLASS”!!

 

It is open: June, July and August – Friday, Saturday & Sunday

Fun facts

Although it was originally largely a religious holiday, Father’s Day has been commercialized with the sending of greeting cards and the giving of gifts.

 

Some observe the custom of wearing a red rose to indicate that one’s father is living or a white rose to indicate that he is deceased. Other males—for example, grandfathers or uncles who have assumed parenting roles—are often also honored on the day.

Some Roman Catholics have continued to observe the feast day of Saint Joseph, on March 19, as a tribute to fathers.
