A popular restaurant and hotel situated just outside the Homestead steel mills, the Bost Building served as the headquarters of the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers and of the reporters who covered the Hometead strike of 1892. Today the building houses a museum on the history of Homestead and the great strike.
