A peat glassworks was built from Neu Krenzlin in 1743 on the Klein Krams peat bog . The duchy built houses for the glassmakers here. This laid the foundation for the development of the Büdnerdorf Krenzliner Hütte. In 1779 the glassworks were given up and the glassmaker's apartments were sold to the highest bidder at Büdnerrecht. Except for the place and field names of the glass melt, nothing remains of the glassworks.
