The Dorflinger Glass Museum is a tribute to the life and accomplishments of Christian Dorflinger, known throughout the world as the creator of fine crystal and exquisite cut glass. In the 1860s, French glassmaker Christian Dorflinger purchased 600 acres of spectacularly beautiful land to be used as the setting for an escape from the rigors of his glass factories in Brooklyn, New York. Shortly after relocating here, he constructed in the village of White Mills a glass factory where he was to design and produce some of the finest lead crystal in the country. Over a century later, the Dorflinger Glass Museum opened its doors to share with visitors these treasures of extraordinary crystal that represent the artisan's finest creations; creations sought by presidents and kings. Displayed among period antiques and artifacts from the glass factories themselves, this definitive collection ranges from household items to presentation pieces, and from the graceful elegance of simplicity to the stunningly intricate. The wildlife sanctuary on the surrounding grounds is an attraction within itself.
