Steelworks Museum Opens in Pueblo

Historians in Pueblo, eager to tell the story of Colorado’s steel industry, happened upon the mother lode a while back. They opened the door to a medical clinic that once served the CF&I steel mill.

Now, seven years after that discovery, the clinic has turned into a museum. Maria Sanchez-Kennedy, executive director of the Bessemer Historical Society in Pueblo, talks to Ryan Warner.
