River Pump House
— Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area —The cement pad beneath your feet was once the floor of the Pump House for Jones & Laughlin's No. 2 Open Hearth Shop. Pump houses were an integral part of the steelmaking process. Water, used for cooling of the metal and machinery, was pulled from the Monongahela River into high-capacity pumps. From there it was pushed through underground pipes to No. 2 Shop and the surrounding mill facilities.
