The #6 Carrie Furnace

This was one of seven blast furnaces on the site that produced pig iron for the Carnegie Steel Co.. This #6 furnace ran from 1907 until it was shut down in 1978. The holes at bottom center are where the molten iron flowed out into troughs in the ground, and was then poured into rail cars for transport across a hot metal bridge to the Homestead Steel Works.
