Steel mu­seum in Coatesville to hold bar­be­cue

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - BUSINESS -

In honor of Penn­syl­va­nia’s 300th an­niver­sary of iron- and steel-mak­ing, the Na­tional Iron & Steel Her­itage Mu­seum in Coatesville is pre­sent­ing “Penn­syl­va­nia Iron and Steel: 300 Years of In­dus­trial Might,” fea­tur­ing an all-you-can eat bar­be­cue, open to the pub­lic.

The Com­mu­nity & Steel­work­ers’ Bar­be­cue, from noon to 4 p.m. on Satur­day, Oct. 1, will be on the grounds of the Na­tional Iron & Steel Her­itage Mu­seum. Ad­mis­sion is $20 for a full bar­be­cue catered by Harry’s, fea­tur­ing Harry’s hot dogs, burger slid­ers, pulled pork, cold and hot side dishes, bev­er­ages and beer. The ex­hibit, which is in­cluded in the bar­be­cue ad­mis­sion, will in­clude some 25 of Penn­syl­va­nia’s most his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant iron and steel sites: from Poole Forge, the state’s first iron works, to United States Steel, a leader in the global steel in­dus­try.

View­ers will learn about the im­por­tance of Penn­syl­va­nia to the na­tional iron and steel in­dus­try. In the 1700s and 1800s Penn­syl­va­nia was the top iron-mak­ing state in the U.S., and in the 1900s, Penn­syl­va­nia was once con­sid­ered the steel cap­i­tal of the world.

The ex­hibit will be on dis­play from Oc­to­ber 2016 through April 2017. The Na­tional Iron & Steel Her­itage Mu­seum draws in­ter­na­tional crowds to its fa­cil­ity, which ed­u­cates the pub­lic on the peo­ple, places, prod­ucts and pro­cesses of steel mak­ing, as well as the im­por­tance of ed­u­cat­ing chil­dren in the STEM dis­ci­pline (Science, Tech­nol­ogy, En­gi­neer­ing and Math).
