Overview

Homestead, first published in 1910 as one volume in the classic Pittsburgh Survey, describes daily life in a community that was dominated economically and physically by the giant Homestead Works of the United States Steel Corporation.  Homestead, just across the Monongahela River from Pittsburgh, developed as a completely separate city — a true mill town settled by newer immigrants and shaped in its attitudes by the infamous Homestead Strike of 1892.
