Materials on the Move
— Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area —In 1885, the Monongahela Connecting Railroad (MonCon) was chartered as a subsidiary of Jones & Laughlin's, Ltd. Rail lines were built on both the northern and southern sides of the river. At this time, the only connection between the plants was a ferry, which operated on the river to move materials between the blast furnace plant on the northern shore and the steel mills on the South Side.
