The United States Steel Corporation (NYSE: X), more commonly known as U. S. Steel, is an integrated steel producer headquartered in Pittsburgh with major production operations in the United States, Canada, and Central Europe. The company is the world's tenth largest steel producer ranked by sales (see list of steel producers). It was renamed USX Corporation in 1991 and back to United States Steel Corporation in 2001 when the shareholders of USX spun off its steel-making assets following the acquisition of Marathon Oil in 1982. It is still the largest domestically owned integrated steel producer in the United States, although it produces only slightly more steel than it did in 1902.
The two-floor, 12,000 square-foot museum is in a recreated bastion of Fort Pitt, which was originally built in 1758 by the British. The only remaining structure from the Fort Pitt, a small brick redoubt called the "Blockhouse" that is thought to be the oldest building still standing west of the Appalachian Mountains, sits adjacent to the museum. The historical focus of the museum is the role that Fort Pitt played during the French and Indian War. The museum also features detailed information on Fort Pitt's role during the American Revolution, the Whiskey Rebellion and the founding of Pittsburgh.
