Description

Taken from a bluff in Rankin, this is one of those places that built America. Furnaces 6 and 7 still stand to become a monument to the industrial might and Mon Valley melting pot, inspiring books such as Thomas Bell's Out of This Furnace and even a John Wayne movie. The Pittsburgh-based Industrial Arts Cooperative made several large sculptures from materials found on the site after its abandonment by US Steel.

This site is to become a 21st century walkable, multi-use riverfront community connected to adjacent neighborhoods and the region through its many transportation facilities and the draw of the steel Industry Heritage National Historic Site park.
