    C. M. Schwab Industrial School

    When a new generation of architects feels utter contempt for the work of the previous generation, this is the result. Fortunately, the contempt extended to ignoring the details of the original building, which are therefore preserved, except for the loss of the cornice. Like several other previously abandoned buildings in the historic center of Homestead, this one has now found another use.


    The school was named for Charles M. Schwab, who was superintendent of the Homestead Works and later the first president of United States Steel.
