The Little Studio at The Seneca Center
In the late 19th century, the Seneca Glass Company began producing beautiful art glassware at its factory along the Monongahela River in Morgantown, W.Va. The quality of the glass and the skill of its craftsmen was world renowned. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy visited the showroom in the 1960s to choose glassware for the White House. But by the 1980s, the factory was closed. Enterprising businessmen saw the value of preserving Morgantown's history and created an indoor shopping, dining, and office center that continues to thrive today with locally owned small businesses.
The Little Studio opened in 2005 in the unique and charming Seneca Center, becoming artisan workspace and the retail shop for Tamarack Jewelry Designer Amy Johns, and for talented silk floral designer, Carolyn Schuessler. The artists share the beautiful space that was once the cutting room for the glassware, with its original wooden floor, red brick wall, and the 1880s era freight elevator. In addition to Amalea Jewelry and Carolyn's Florals, The Little Studio sells Sarris Candies chocolates, Indigenous Impressions photo greeting cards by Pete Zapadka, and greeting cards by Alisha Johns.
