Homestead is a borough in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, USA, in the Monongahela River valley 7 miles southeast of downtown Pittsburgh. The borough is known for the Homestead Strike of 1892, an important event in the history of labor relations in the United States. Homestead’s place in the industrial revolution and later labor movements are so important that most of our downtown buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Bost Building, built in 1892, was AA union headquarters during the Homestead Strike that year, and today is a National Historic Landmark and museum of the Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area
