Bethlehem Steel Ξ Star of Bethlehem

As we summited the blast furnace we were able to look out over the town which supported the thousands of people who worked here. The scene was tinged with sadness, though, since the steel itself was cold and dark against the vibrant light of the town below. Many people were put out of work when the mill closed, and many jobs were lost to overseas companies. For many this place forged the American Dream as much as it forged steel, and today that opportunity is no longer available.
