For more than a century, the Homestead Works dominated an industry and defined a community. Built in 1881 by a handful of businessmen eager to cash in on the industrial boom, the Homestead Works began flourishing after Andrew Carnegie purchased it in 1883. Carnegie and his fellow investors would outfit the facility with the newest technology, and lay the groundwork for a mill that would remain active for another hundred years.
