Site of the Battle of Homestead

Homestead Works

Enjoy a peaceful walk along the Monongahela River and through the Waterfront’s retail district to learn about the remaining artifacts from one of the world’s largest steel mills: the Homestead Works.

Adjacent to the Monongahela River, this site was the primary battleground between the Pinkertons and the locked-out steelworkers. For more information about the Battle of Homestead, try our Battle of Homestead Walking Tour. Directly across the river from the start of this tour are the Carrie Furnaces, a National Historic Landmark.
