Glass, sixteen miles southwest of Bastrop in southwestern Bastrop County, received a post office in 1890; Joseph S. Miller was postmaster. By the mid-1890s the community had two grocery stores, a corn mill and gin, a Baptist church, and fifty residents. The Glass post office closed in 1899. In the late 1940s no evidence of the community was shown on county highway maps.
