Carrie Furnace Revisited

I love Pittsburgh. One of my favorite places in Pittsburgh is a derelict piece of mining real estate nestled on the edge of Rankin, PA known as Carrie Furnace. This isn’t the first article I’ve written about Carrie and hopefully it won’t be the last. Carrie Furnace was built well over 100 years ago in 1881 to be exact and today blast furnaces 6 and 7 stand tall in the large field that once stood home to Homestead Steel Works. Today local historic group Rivers of Steel maintains the property. I was lucky enough to make friends with the fine folk at Rivers of Steel, and these are some of the photos that I never got around to posting from a late September visit to this incredible remainder of Pittsburgh’s steel industry.
