Bethlehem Works, Now Steel Stacks

Bethlehem steel was the epicenter of the industrial revolution in America.  Many iconic buildings began here, their steel backbones shaped, formed and finished by the hardworking people of Bethlehem.

With the steel industry now gone, Bethlehem is preserving and promoting its history.  The center of the Bethlehem Steel foundry, last operational in 1995, has now become Steel Stacks.  As you can see in the picture below, a walking platform has been built around what operated as Blast Furnace A, one of seven blast furnaces that once occupied the site.  Next to the furnace, is now an amphitheater that draws national acts and local events.
