A tour of the National Historic Landmark Carrie Furnaces provides a solid sense of how massive an impact the steel industry had on Pittsburgh’s growth and eventual success. You don’t need to be into Rust Belt architecture to feel quite humbled at the foot of these monumental structures once critical to the iron-making process. On a general tour, you’ll hear stories of how Andrew Carnegie and hundreds of thousands of workers produced steel for both World War II and iconic American skyscrapers. There are also specialty tours like photo safaris, kids’ adventure walks, and happy hours in conjunction with local breweries.
