Crumbling Steel Mill Buildings Are Razed

YORKVILLE — Residents driving near the old steel mill in the village might notice increased activity around the former center of industry, as the new owners of the property are making some changes. 

The steel mill operated for more than a century as part of Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corp., helping supply the nation with metal for various purposes. After standing silent for a number of years, the building and some adjacent property was purchased by CJ Betters Enterprises, a management and leasing services company based in Aliquippa, Pa.
