Event Description
Carrie Furnaces Self-Paced Tours

Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area is operating tours of the Carrie Furnaces. Constructed in 1906, the furnaces stood at the heart of U.S. Steel's Homestead Works until 1979. At one time, the blast furnaces and the steelworkers who labored in them produced more than 1,000 tons of iron a day. Now, these 92-foot-tall structures stand as sentinels to Pittsburgh's steel heritage.

On this self-paced tour, visitors are invited to explore the site at their own pace. Former steelworkers and docents will be stationed throughout the site to explain the iron-making process and share their personal experiences and stories.

Allow 2 hours. Recommended for ages 8+
