Inscription.  
Across the Mahoning River from this site was the Lowellville Works of the Sharon Steel Corporation (1917-1961). The Sharon Steel was formed from two separate mills, the Ohio Iron and Steel Company, home of the historic "Mary” iron ore furnace (erected in 1845) and the Youngstown Iron and Steel Company (established in 1915), which produced steel from its four open hearth furnaces. The "Mary” furnace is believed to be the first blast furnace in the world to use raw bituminous coal in the production of pig iron.
