The Baltimore Museum of Industry tells the story of Baltimore, a place impacted as much by the worker as the work itself.

Three years ago, the BMI launched one of its most ambitious projects ever. The Bethlehem Steel Legacy Project honors the men and women who worked at Bethlehem’s massive Sparrows Point steel mill from 1887 to 2012. To tell their story, we asked what does Bethlehem Steel mean to Baltimore.

In response, the BMI has been entrusted with hundreds of objects and documents that help tell the story of steelmaking in Baltimore. And, most importantly, we’ve recorded the memories of people who worked and lived at the Point so future generations will never forget the hard work and pride that defined Bethlehem Steel.
