Programs and Services

  • The National Duncan Glass Society was formed to study, research, preserve, and educate the public on the rich heritage of Duncan Glass and the glass industry of Washington County as well as the surrounding region; including the design, manufacture, and marketing of its products, and to celebrate the men and women who made it possible.
  • The Society (NDGS) supports the Duncan & Miller Museum dedicated to this mission. NDGS programming includes two annual Antique Show and Sales, two Sidewalk sales, hosting national conventions, monthly live and zoom educational meetings, and annual auctions.
  • The National Duncan Glass Society publishes a quarterly full color journal of original research and photography featuring Duncan glassware, other regional glass companies and related social, manufacturing and art history.
  • The Duncan and Miller Museum welcomes guests from many countries as well as from all over the United States. Young and older guests enjoy the social and industrial history of Duncan glassware from before the Civil War through the 1950’s. Victorian, Colonial, Art Deco, and Mid-Century Modern designs reflect the changing styles of American dining. As manners and etiquette evolved, so did the forms of glassware. Visitors enjoy “How is it Made?” room, the 1930’s kitchen and parlor, special displays of Ripley, Hazel Atlas, Perfection, Washington Company, Victorian glass in silver frames, and the ever-popular glowing Vaseline Glass display.
