The Granite City Works traces its roots to 1878, when brothers William and Frederick Niedringhaus built a steel factory in St. Louis for their granite kitchenware business. With no room to expand, they moved the plant across the river in 1892 and started their own company town — Granite City.
The Granite City Steel Company was sold to National Steel before being purchased by the United States Steel Corporation.
