Time Travel: Simpson Creek Baptist Church Annex Start and Hazel Atlas Glass Works in Clarksburg

By Dick Duez on July 09, 2017 from History Blog via Connect-Bridgeport.com

There have been plenty of upgrades and additions to the Simpson Creek Baptist Church through the years. This photo is believed to show, from right (and not certain on the spellings as well), Bill Morgan, Bill Ferguson, George Garrett and E.G. Lusk. If that's correct, let us know and if you know anything else - including when this may have been taken - please add in the comment section below.
At one time, Clarksburg had multiple glass plants operating. One of the biggest and most well known was Hazel Atlas Glass Works shown in this photo from many decades ago.
 
Editor's Note: This ongoing photo feature of pictures from Bridgeport and throughout the Mountain State is part of local historian Richard "Dick" Duez's collection. Duez, the unofficial historian of Bridgeport, would appreciate any scanned photos emailed to him for use here or to include in his ongoing efforts to preserve local history. You can email photos, or let him know how to acquire copies of photos you may have in your possession, to Duez at dick.do@frontier.com.
