Forging the West, a new film by HaveyPro Cinema in association with Historic Pueblo, Inc., will bring the epic story of an essential western industry to life for audiences throughout the state and region. The Colorado Fuel and Iron Company (CF&I) began production in 1872 and grew to become the largest steel mill in the western United States and a firm of enormous importance to the industrialization of the American West. The first steel mill west of the Mississippi River, CF&I also played a pivotal role in the tumultuous history of American labor relations. Its mills in Pueblo, Colorado provided iron and steel products for agriculture, transportation, mining and other industries critical to western development.
