Blake Brothers Glass
The Blake Brothers Glass Company has been family-owned and operated for nearly 67 years, since the early 1950s, when the brothers’ father, Omer, and his brother, James, decided to open the business. The brothers took over the business, which is located at 324 East Main Street, from their father in 1984. The company is mostly known for producing commercial construction material, but they also ship their product out of the county. As of 2012, the company employed many people who had worked for Blake Brothers Glass for several years, many ranging from fifteen to twenty-five years of employment.
