We stayed at the casino built near an old steel plant, so we decided to tour the closed plant. The company was Bethlehem Steel, the inventors of the Bethlehem beam. You may not know the name but you know the recognize it. They could produce one destroyer battle ship a day. It opened in 1857 as the Saucona Iron Company in closed as Bethlehem steel company in 2001. If not for them the US would have lost wars. They produced enough steel to build 12000 golden gate bridges. The Bethlehem Steel Company and Bethlehem Shipbuilding Company were both leading industries in America before plastic and imported goods came along. I think it looks like a castle. If it were it would be huge.
