Steel Genesis seeks to make a metaphor for human mettle and personal genesis from a mill that once nestled on the banks of the Monongahela River. Iron-making operations began before the Civil War. The last steel was poured in April, 1985,
Few experience an old-time steel mill’s awesome, harrowing and magical world. As a young mother, I worked at J&L Steel’s Pittsburgh Works during its heyday with 10,000 people bustling through its various shops. I was there the last time steel was poured and continued through the mill’s destruction and the resurrection of new opportunities on that acreage.
Steel Genesis’ mission is the presentation of marvelous stories and evocative images of making steel, the metal and human mettle. The goal is to encourage, refresh, enrich creative thinking and inspire. Investment in SteelGenesis allows continued site development and the addition of new information and resources.
Thank you for your sponsorship and support of this special and unique initiative.
