New Jersey’s role in the history of glassmaking: “Wheaton bottles” were made by the Wheaton Glass Company, which was established in 1968 by Frank H. Wheaton Jr., the grandson of a pharmacist who made glass medicine bottles in Millville. It was the quality of southern New Jersey’s sand that was crucial to establishing a glassmaking center. Sand is the major ingredient in glass, and it was such good, clean sand that the Boston and Sandwich Glass Company imported it up to Massachusetts.
