Join us for a presentation on Fundidora Park, an industrial archaeology museum and public park in the heart of Monterrey, Mexico—one of nine recipients of a grant from American Express for sites on the 2014 World Monuments Watch.

Founded in 1900, the Compañía Fundidora de Fierro y Acero de Monterrey, S. A. heralded the industrialized production of steel in Latin America. The foundry was known as “La Maestranza”—derived from maestro, or teacher—as it was the training site for the first generations of ironworkers and technicians in Monterrey. After many years of production, the industrial site closed in 1986, reopening in 1988 as a public park that serves a recreational and educational purpose for the city and its visitors.
