    Frank House Golf Course is a part of the Bessemer Municipal system and it has been around for a long time! It's not the longest course in the city, but it will give you some great obstacles to overcome! Inexpensive and lots of fun!

    One of the largest employers in the Bessemer area is U S Pipe & Foundry. This company, previously called the Eureka Mining Company, bought acreage in 1889 to build eight furnaces and two railroad outlets. The city was renamed from Brooklyn to Bessemer in honor of a British scientist who was famous for his contribution to the steel making process. Bessemer was built to capitalize on its iron and steel resources. By 1890, the city's population was the fourth largest in the state. The company still in existence is now known as U S Pipe and Foundry. It remains one of the largest employers in the area.
