A quick look back at the highlights of 2021 with Rivers of Steel.

Looking Back & Looking Ahead

Rivers of Steel’s accomplishments in 2021 set the stage for bigger things to come! 

2021 was a dynamic year for Rivers of Steel.

  • It marked the launch of the new Uniquely Pittsburgh Sightseeing Tour on the Explorer riverboat, along with a resurgence of student environmental education programs on the vessel.
  • It saw the return of the Carrie Carpool Cinema and the Alloy Pittsburgh exhibition at the Carrie Blast Furnaces.
  • A ten-year restoration of the Machine Shop was completed, and new restoration work at Carrie began with support from a Save America’s Treasures grant.
  • A record number of visitors participated in our tours and workshops—and community-based programs engaged with neighbors in new ways!

Through it all, Rivers of Steel forged connections with our region’s industrial and cultural heritage with visions for its future. Support these efforts by donating to Rivers of Steel today!
