National Depression Glass Association Convention

This will be the 32nd Convention, and for the second year in a row it is being held at this location. The NDGA is an organization for collectors of American made glassware, with an emphasis on glass made before, during and immediately after the years of the great depression.

The organization began in 1973, with the first Convention held in Washington, D.C. in 1974.

The Convention will be held at the Waxahachie Civic Center. For more information check the NDGA web page ( or contact: Convention Chairman Kent Washburn at 210-599-0635 or by email at
