Architecture Around Us: The Design of Democracy: Steelworkers Hall in Aliquippa


Aliquippa’s history as a steel town is written in its city plan, and its history as a frontier of labor relations is inscribed in the architecture of one its most distinguished buildings. From 1943 until the early 2000s, a Classical Revival former bank at 501 Franklin Avenue served as the headquarters of the United Steelworkers Local #1211.
