Worth visiting and hearing the story of glassblowing, the owner's history, and seeing his artful pieces. Riverton is small, but the General Store is fun and Sweet Peas is an option for lunch. Definitely see Greenwood.

My sister, mother, and I made glass paperweights and glass flowers with Peter. He was patient with directions and helped us feel at ease. We had a ton of laughs and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We will 100% be back again.
