Carrie Furnace Part II - First Hand Photos

In May 5 post, I noted that the old Carrie Furnace facility of U.S. Steel was going to be opened for hard hat tours by its new owner, Rivers of Steel Heritage Corporation. I had the opportunity to take an individually guided tour recently -- the pictures above came from that tour. This is really a fascinating tour through history -- keep your eyes opened for an industrial history tour with the Carrie Furnace as the centerpiece.

By the way, the photo on the top is of a sculpture made by local artists who had broken in to the site some years ago and created a massive deer head out of scrap wire.
