“A Real Steel Mill”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Please try to tour this abandoned steel mill. Nothing has been done to pretty it up. You can almost feel what it was like to have worked in this dark and dangerous place. You'll find workers' gloves and personal items simply left when they closed. If you are a photographer, you'll be overwhelmed with the opportunities. Great docents. A true national treasure of what made Pittsburgh 'Steel Country'
