The Edward D. Libbey House is a National Historic Landmark at 2008 Scottwood Avenue in Toledo, Ohio. Built in 1895, it was the Home Edward Libbey (1854-1925), a businessman who revolutionized the glassmaking industry in the United States. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1983. It is now owned by a nonprofit public charity dedicated to its preservation.

Libbey House Foundation receives an Ohio Cultural Facilities Grant and a Toledo Façade Improvement Grant for a major restoration project that will stabilize and preserve the home’s historic wrap around front porch. Private donations make up the difference and allows for additional restoration of this historic landmark. Libbey House Receives American Rescue Plan Grant. The Libbey House Foundation has received a grant of $10,000 from funds made possible by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The funds will be used by the foundation to support the maintenance and upkeep of the Libbey House, the home of Edward Drummond Libbey, who brought the glass industry to Toledo in 1888. The Libbey House is the only National Historic Landmark in Toledo. The ARPA funds were awarded through a cooperative program of the Arts Commission of Toledo, the City of Toledo, and the Lucas County Commissioners, and administered by The Arts Commission. A new exhibit opened August 12, 2023 at the Toledo Museum of Art featuring ReGift, a sculptural installation by artist Beth Lipman. It is based on the Libbeys’ detailed bookplate, which features the reception hall in their Scottwood Avenue home. Artist Beth Lipman created the sculptural installation out of glass and wood, which honors Mrs. Libbey, as she was a visionary about the museum’s presence in the community. Be sure to see it in Gallery 18. The Libbey House presented an 11-part series of lectures highlighting the role of glass in Toledo and the world, in celebration of 2022 as a United Nations International Year of Glass to highlight the impact of glass in scientific, economic and cultural roles. Glass supports many vital technologies, facilitates sustainability and a green world and enriches our lives, yet often goes unnoticed. Celebrating our glass heritage in the Glass City.
