Solid Pewter Ornaments of Historic Glastonbury
Cub Scout Pack 241 is offering the 28th series of commemorative ornaments featuring historic buildings, locations and events in Glastonbury. The 2018 ornament celebrates The 325th Anniversary of Glastonbury !
2018 marks the 325th anniversary of the founding of Glastonbury in 1693. Glastonbury was originally named Glassenbury. Glastonbury is named after Glastonbury, Somerset, England. The town symbol is a sprig from a Glastonbury Thorn plant. Glastonbury is known for its agriculture, ship building and early industrial beginnings. There were 3 main shipyards that launched a total of 273 ships of record for use in the West Indies trade and coastal rivers of North America. Factories manufactured soap, leather, woolen goods among other goods during the industrial revolution. In approximately 1785 the town changed its name to Glastenbury. It would later change its name one final time to Glastonbury in 1870. Glastonbury has many notable residents including George Stocking, James B. Williams, the five Smith Sisters, and Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy under Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson. There are only 2 towns named Glastonbury, Glastonbury England and Glastonbury USA.
Each year Pack 241 designs a new pewter ornament featuring a different historic building, location or event. Hand cast by Woodbury Pewter, the ornaments are about 2 ¼ inches in diameter.
