Homestead Pennsylvania ... America's quintessential steel town [1]

"Located in the Monongahela River Valley fourteen miles south of Pittsburgh, Homestead began as a small village in the 1870s, housing a glassmaking works and 1,000 inhabitants by the end of that decade. In 1881, a group of Pittsburgh iron and steel men established one of the country's most up-to-date steelmaking facilities there, the Homestead Works. Shortly thereafter, a plague of labor problems prompted the owners to sell out to Andrew Carnegie who transformed the works into an awesome production facility."
