OVERSHADOWED: Buffalo's Lesser-known Steelmakers.
Buffalo was a giant of the steel industry during the 20th century. Many iron and steel plants sprang up
throughout Western New York, including Republic Steel, Hanna Furnace, Donner Hanna Coke, Buffalo Forge,
and many more. They were innovative, successful companies that thrived for many years. However, the decline
of the steel industry took its toll on each company, and forced many of them out of business. The Steel
Plant Museum's new exhibit honors the memories of those who worked for some of Buffalo's lesser
known steel companies, and preserves their stories for future generations.
