Constructed in 1906, the Carrie Blast Furnaces 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 ATMAE members 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.
This ATMAE Tour will leave the hotel at 3:00PM on Friday, November 13, 2015 and will take approximately 30 minutes of travel time to the historical furnace site. The tour takes approximately 1½ hours and you should be back at the hotel by 6:00PM.
All attendees are required to sign a liability waiver which can be found here. Please bring the completed forms with you the day of the tour (this will expedite the check-in process and allow more time for the tour).
Please note that the Carrie Furnaces are part of a former industrial site. Heels and/or open-toed shoes are not permitted. Participants should dress for the weather and most of the tour takes place outdoors. At this time the site is not wheelchair accessible.
The group rate for this tour is $35.00 per person.
