Homestead Steel WorksFor over a century, the massive Homestead Steel Works defined the Pittsburgh Region as the steelmaking capital of the world. Opened in 1881 by a handful of industrialists eager to take part in the industrial boom, the Homestead Works flourished after Andrew Carnegie purchased it in 1883. In 1901, when J.P. Morgan bought Carnegie's holdings and formed United States Steel, the Homestead Works was poised to become one of Unites States Steel's most important mills.
