Our Club: The Historical Glass Club of Pittsburgh (HGCP)

Who/ What:

The more than 60 members of HGCP are not only from the local Pittsburgh area, but from throughout distant locations around the Tri-State (Pennsylvania /Ohio /West Virginia) area.

The Glassblower, HGCP's monthly newsletter, is sent to each member prior to each upcoming meeting. It shares information about the previous month's program, upcoming meeting information, events and trip information.


HGCP meets the third Wednesday of every month from September through May. Optional dinners at the Crowne Plaza start at 6:30PM -- Club Meetings start at 7:45PM


We meet at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, across from Pittsburgh's South Hills Village, unless so noted on the calendar. Note the ACTIVE LINK to a map that will help you find the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Dues for the year are $20. If you think that you would like to attend a meeting to learn more about American Glass and our Club, please use the links and head to the Membership and/or the Contact Us pages. The optional dinner at the Crowne Plaza is $22.61 for members

A Message from Our President

Kathy Roth

A great big thank you to our membership for their vote of confidence in the newly elected officers. My fellow officers and I would like to thank Martin and his officers for the successful year 2013-2014.

Your officers and I are looking forward to a fabulous 2015 year. Our Speakers are already lined up. Of course, we were all in for a great treat having our September meeting at David Gestler’s home.

We look forward to seeing which club member will bring in the most new members and wins the $50 gift certificate to the show.

God bless.

Once again, welcome and we look forward to your next visit!
