William Glen was founded in 1963 by William Snyder and Glen Forbes. Friends since college, the duo set out to form a decorating studio and ended up creating an gift and home essentials empire that lasted 47 years. Bill's son now runs three small William Glen stores in the image of what Bill and Glen first created. After Bill's death in 2009, his widow closed the business and the community mourned the loss. What stands now is the beginning of an effort to rebuild what was lost.
