History through a bottle event planned

August 17, 2018

The Somerset Historical Center is offering a unique look at area history through bottles.

A special program will look at history through milk, liquor and soda bottles. The center is teaming up with the Laurel Highlands Antique Bottle Club to identify and document as many local bottles as possible.

The plan is to photograph each bottle that comes in, and help people learn about the company that manufactured it. Visitors will learn how to identify bottles. That info, and the photos, will be compiled and published in a booklet.

The event, set for 2 p.m. Saturday, is free to the public. Call 814-445-6077 to register.
