McKeesport, Pennsylvania

Located at the confluence of the Monongahela and Youghiogheny Rivers, McKeesport is a city in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania and is part of the Pittsburgh Metro Area. Home to over 24,000 residents, McKeesport is the second largest city (not including townships, boroughs, and Home Rule Municipalities) in the county after Pittsburgh. McKeesport was settled in 1795 and named in honor of John McKee, its founder. In 1842, McKeesport was incorporated as a borough and later as a city in 1891.

Beginning in the late 19th century and through much of the 20th century, McKeesport’s primary industry was steelmaking. The National Tube Works Company, a manufacturer of iron pipes, opened in 1872 and became part of U.S. Steel. In the years directly following the opening of the National Tube Company, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, McKeesport was the fastest growing municipality in the United States. The city's population reached a peak of 55,355 in 1940. Families arrived from other parts of the Eastern United States, Italy, Germany, Russia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary, with most working at the National Tube Company (at one point employing approximately 10,000 men). During World War II, McKeesport contributed to the steel making efforts and for the first time in McKeesport, women worked in the steel mills. National Tube closed in the 1980s, along with other United States Steel plants in the Mon Valley.
