Bessemer Continued

Bessemer was truly a neighborhood that embraced modernity, at one
time Bessemer was fully equipped with three trolley lines, its own city hall,
an amusement park, with a still operating carousel that Pueblo proudly displays
and utilizes at City Park. Additionally, Bessemer was furnished with parks and
dotted with businesses, restaurants, and bars. Pueblo’s unique and delicious
culinary cuisines were bore from these mom and pop restaurants and taverns and
a few still are open for business to this day. 

The construction of the Steelworks Y in the heart of
Bessemer strengthened the flourishing and eclectic town and provided a myriad
of opportunities, social events, recreation, and education. The Steelworks Y
moreover functioned as a truly needed refuge to the hard working families by
providing a sense of community for the immigrant and American families alike
that toiled at the mill.
