Bus Trip: Rust and Recollection: Exploring our Industrial Inheritance

Enjoy an up-close-and-personal exploration into Pittsburgh's industrial past and present-and get insight into its future-during this Pittsburgh area day trip that includes stops in Homestead, Braddock and Munhall. Take an in-depth tour of the colossal Carrie Furnaces at the former U.S. Steel Homestead Works, now a National Historic Landmark. Visit key sites of the Homestead Steel Strike, including the Bost Building and the Pump House, and expect other surprises along the way! The day includes lunch in Homestead at the Tin Front Café, which not only serves vegetarian comfort food made with locally grown ingredients but is also contributing to the revitalization of the mill town's historic main street.

Note: The Carrie Furnaces are an abandoned industrial site. Please dress accordingly; no heels or open-toed shoes are permitted, and long pants should be worn. At this time, the Carrie Furnaces are not wheelchair accessible. All participants must sign a waiver of liability before visiting the site. For questions about the Carrie Furnace Site Tour, please e-mail Laura Ainsley at lainsley@thefrickpittsburgh.org.

 Advance registration and pre-payment required.
