Event Description

Constructed in 1906, Carrie Furnaces 6 & 7 stood at the heart of U.S. Steel's Homestead Works until 1979. At one time, the 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 tour, a Rivers of Steel tour guide will lead visitors through the iron-making process, sharing the story of the site's technology, workers, and culture from it's heyday to the post-industrial present. Allow 2 hours.


Guided tours of the Carrie Blast Furnaces are offered May through October.
