Steelworks Museum of Industry & Culture
Operated by The Bessemer Historical Society, The Steelworks Museum of Industry and Culture will initially be housed in the beautiful mission style building that served as the Dispensary for the Colorado Fuel and Iron Corporation in Pueblo, CO. The Bessemer Historical Society has purchased buildings in the original administrative complex and is currently working to preserve and renovate the buildings. The 1901 Administration building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 6, 2002.
The Steelworks Museum of Industry and Culture will bridge the past to the future with innovative exhibitions that relate to all facets of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Co. CF&I. The museum will engage visitors by exploring the history of the people and technologies that built the West. The museum will have a unique emphasis on science and technology, as well as labor and company history, making the museum a one of a kind resource for the state of Colorado, the West and beyond!
Bessemer Historical Society’s Mission is to provide continuing education to the public through the preservation of the historic archives, artifacts and buildings of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Co. BHS collects, preserves, interprets, and exhibits the collections of the steel and mining industry, the Bessemer neighborhood, and the working families of the steel and mining industry in the region and the Industrial West.
