description

Summary

Address of the plant headquarters was changed from 3100 West 45th Street to 3100 East 45th Street to correct it's location.
Significance: Dalliba, Corrigan & Company (later Corrigan, Ives & Company) was one of the leading ore merchants on the Great Lakes during the late nineteenth century. Unable to sell the full capacity of its Lake Superior mines, the company leased or acquired blast furnaces in Ohio, New York, and Pennsylvania, and in 1909 began the construction of two stacks on the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland that became the nucleus of one of America's important independent steel companies, the Corrigan, McKinney Company. Between 1913 and 1916, Corrigan, McKinney built two additional furnaces and a steel works for the production of blooms, sheet bars, and billets. The problem of industry-wide integration led the company to later add merchant mills for the production of finished steel. In 1935, Corrigan, McKinney was acquired by the Republic Steel Corporation. The plant has been continuously enlarged and is today one of the nation's ten largest steel plants.
