Built on the Monongahela River across from McKeesport, the Duquesne Steel Works began production in 1889 as a state-of-the-art Bessemer steel-rail mill. The mill played a key role in U.S. Steel’s production capacity, and served as a testing ground for a new policy of “welfare capitalism,” in which the corporation offered stock purchases, pension plans and health benefits to foster employee loyalty.
