Back by popular demand! Trolleys will take people around the site. The $5.00 per person, 25-minute tours will include the ore bridge, the blast furnaces, the No. 2 Machine Shop, the iron foundry and central tool shop. Steelworkers will be on the trolleys to comment on the buildings. No one will be allowed to leave the trolley during the tour.
The primary purpose is to raise funds for and awareness of the nonprofit Steelworkers' Archives, which was started in 2001 to register all former steelworkers in a database and showcase their lives, stories and memorabilia. The archives will have a booth where steelworkers can register. Artifacts such as photos, letters, clothing and video also will be accepted. There will be story telling under the tent. Refreshments will be available for a small charge.
