: This is a photograph of the Brier Hill Steel Company, Youngstown, Ohio, ca. 1890-1899. The blast furnace shown was used to produce pig iron during the late nineteenth century. In 1913, the Brier Hill Works updated their equipment and began producing open hearth steel. This caught the attention of James A. Campbell, who led Youngstown Sheet and Tube's acquisition of the facility in 1923. View on Ohio Memory.
