Museum of Cut and Engraved Glass, Highlands NC

NC ECHO Photograph  The Museum of American Cut and Engraved Glass, in Highlands, is considered one of the finest collections of its kind in the world. The museum exhibits cut and engraved glass primarily from the American Brilliant Period, 1876-1916. The museum seeks to educate people about glass from this period and increase awareness of and appreciation for this American art form. Housed in a rustic log cabin, the collection's brilliance is a direct contradiction to its humble setting.
