Bergdala Glasbruk was founded by Alfred Sjöö in 1889.

In 2009 the glassworks was 120 years old. Then society Glas i Hovmantorp commemorated this with an exhibition at the Hovmantorp Folkets hus.
The society also published a booklet about Bergdala. That, and the old book "En gång Bergdala, alltid Bergdala" (1983), can still be bought at Folkets hus, at Bergdala Wärdshus , or at Bergdala Spinnhus.
