Guardian Fiberglass, 1978
 
    

An empty Corning Glass Works factory was occupied by Guardian Fiberglass in 1978. Corning closed in 1975 leaving nearly 1,000 Albionites unemployed. Since 1978 Guardian has been making fiberglass at the site and has become a leading employer in Albion.



Factory viewed from Ketchum Park, north of the factory building.
