Tour of Carrie Blast Furnace   

Declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006, “Carrie”, as it’s affectionately known, entices visitors to marvel at the scale and legacy of its industrial might. A remnant of the legendary U.S. Steel Homestead Steel Works, the Carrie Blast Furnaces are a vestige of Pittsburgh’s 20th-century domination of the steel industry. During this two-hour guided tour, you’ll hear stories about the site’s technology (including why it is nationally significant) as well as get to know the culture of its workers. You’ll also learn a bit about the iron-making process, from the movement of the raw materials to the tapping of the furnaces that produced fiery molten iron.

Please note, this is not a totally accessible tour. There are steps involved and uneven terrain. If you have walking difficulty, there may be places where you will not be able to go. Please keep this in mind.
