W.A. Young & Sons Machine Shop & Foundry

William A. Young built the machine shop in 1900 on Water Street, on the banks of the Monongahela River, later expanding with the addition of a foundry. The business produced parts for coal mines, World Wars 1 and 2, and river workers. When it closed in 1965, the building was locked and all of its tools, equipment, and machinery were left in place, a perfectly preserved representation of the transition from the 1800’s village blacksmith to the large maching shops of the 1900’s.
