The Pump House is the last remaining brick structure from Homestead's legendary Carnegie Steel Works and site of the 1892 Battle of Homestead, one the most famous events in American labor history. It is owned and operated by the Rivers Of Steel National Heritage Area.
Rivers Of Steel's mission is to conserve and preserve the industrial and cultural heritage of southwestern Pennsylvania. Rivers Of Steel hosts special events and educational/interpretive programs at the historic Pump House that explore the dramatic events surrounding the 1892 Battle of Homestead, labor heritage, and southwestern Pennsylvania's rich industrial history.
In partnership with Rivers Of Steel, the Battle Of Homestead Foundation, a group of historians, artists and concerned local residents, also presents events and lectures at the Pump House that promote the site's importance as a national labor history site.
