Memories of Steel:
The Last Cast - November 18, 1995.

The Steelworkers’ Archives is sponsoring Memories of Steel: the Last Cast, a 20th anniversary commemoration of the last cast of iron in Bethlehem.  Bethlehem’s hot end closed on November 18, 1995 with the last cast from the C furnace, ending iron and steel making at the plant.  While the majority of shops stayed open at the Bethlehem mill, the closing of the last blast furnace was a profound event for steelworkers, the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, and the entire community.  This anniversary will be remembered with a panel discussion of steelworkers present on that day and actual video footage of the last cast.  In addition, there will be an exhibit of photographs and memorabilia.
