"Since Imperial's earliest days, this site has been known as the Hay Shed.The Imperial Glass factory was built in 1904, and the Hay Shed was erected to store hay, then used for packing protection in shipping cartons. In 1962, the Hay Shed was successfully converted to The Old Hay Shed Gift Shop as a retail outlet for bargains in handcrafted Imperial glassware."
