PPT Carrie Furnace Tour

September 25 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006, Carrie, as it’s affectionately known, entices visitors to marvel at the scale and legacy of its industrial might.  A remnant of the legendary U.S. Steel Homestead Steel Works, the Carrie Blast Furnaces are a vestige of Pittsburgh’s 20th-century domination of the steel industry.

During this two-hour guided tour, you’ll hear stories about the site’s technology (including why it is nationally significant) as well as get to know the culture of its workers. You’ll also learn a bit about the iron-making process, from the movement of the raw materials to the tapping of the furnaces that produced fiery molten iron.

Explore the Steel City by taking a tour of the Carrie Blast Furnaces!

Pittsburgh PrimeTimers® (PPT) is a group of gay/bisexual men who gather to enjoy the social community and activities in the Pittsburgh area. Our purpose is to provide opportunities to come together in a supportive atmosphere for social, educational, and recreational activities. Join us in a comfortable, non-political environment in which your identity is respected (you don’t have to be “out”). PPT is a friendly alternative to the bar scene.

Pittsburgh PrimeTimers® is a member chapter of PrimeTimers® Worldwide  (PTWW).
