Though it is currently headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado, this company made famous for its glass canning jars originated in Buffalo. Do you know the company?

Founded in 1880, Ball Corporation, originally  Ball Brothers Glass Manufacturing Company, purchased land in the east side of Buffalo and built a two-story brick building for their stamping works and a one-story frame factory for the glass works.. The “Buffalo” jars were made for part of 1884, 1885 and 1886.
