Steel produced by Bethlehem Steel was used in the construction of some of American’s greatest landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge and the Chrysler Building. Discover the history and importance of this 20th century giant; its humble beginnings, its monumental growth, and its tragic decline.

The heart and soul of Bethlehem Steel, The Hoover-Mason Trestle, is the closest you can get to the crucible of iron and steel making in America. The laborers of Bethlehem Steel, once the 2nd largest steel producer in the country, were the backbone of the company.

This one-hour walking tour features up close views of the former steel plant and treats guests to an in-depth look at the steel making process and the roles these laborers played in our country’s history.

Dates: Friday – Saturday – Sunday – Complimentary screening of The Christmas City a half hour before the tour when available.
