Homestead Strike of 1892 - Homestead, PA
This tour includes a major part of
Pittsburgh history. You will see the Bost Building, the Pinkerton Detectives landing site, the Pump House, the
Stacks, and the Crane. During the summer of 1892, the Bost Building served
as headquarters for the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers.
They used the third floor of the building as a watchtower, and steel union
officials monitored activities in the mill site and along the Monongahela
River. Would the Pinkerton Detectives Henry Frick hired to quell the
strikers be successful? Find out!
