"The Town that Saved Christmas: The People Behind the Glass" is an Ornament History guide prepared for Wellsboro's Sixth Annual Christmas on Main Street event in December 2021, and is a beautiful keepsake describing Wellsboro's important role in Christmas glass ornament production. This year's tour focuses on the people of Wellsboro and their contributions, both individually and as a community, to the history of glass manufacturing.
Christmas on Main Street is held in Wellsboro annually during the second weekend of December, and celebrates our town's role in saving Christmas during World War II and beyond. Visit each year to learn more about this fascinating story, take the tour, collect the guidebooks, and participate in the many family-friendly activities throughout Wellsboro.
100% of the cost of this guidebook is donated to the Wellsboro Glass Historical Association to establish a permanent home and museum to preserve and share this story and associated artifacts.
