Beaver County History Celebration Weekend – Labor And Industry History Tour (8:00 am)

All “industry” is dependent upon transportation.  The Ohio and Beaver Rivers played important roles in the industrialization of Beaver County. The Rivers formed a natural trade route to Pittsburgh as well as the eastern part of the United States and the mid-west. Other resources such as coal deposits, gas and oil and railroads encouraged the development of factories and towns. The most important factor that Beaver County contributed to the labor and industry growth was the dedication of the workforce – the employees who were the backbone of all of the successful industries. Visit our local historical sites to see what impact the glass and steel industries, railroads, boat building, farming and mining had on the growth of Beaver County.
