Great for history, ghosts, and photography 4/8/2006

This is a place worth visiting. You can take a tour and see the history of the place, from when it was a huge producer of iron to when it was abandoned and converted into a landmark. It is really interesting to walk through here and see how it worked. You can also get some fantastic pictures here; it's a great place if you are a photography buff. There are rumors that this place is haunted, and so every Halloween they have haunted activities here, which are very fun and entertaining. more

Learn the history of steel in a stunning location 8/21/2005

Sloss Furnaces was a major producer of pig iron in Birmingham until the 1970s. Since then it has been converted to an educational historic landmark. It's red silos and ovens are picturesque. Walking through the facilities you will feel enveloped by the architecture, the strange views of large equipment and machinery, the stairways running hither and yon. I felt connected to the brutally hard work that was done by iron workers in years past. There is helpful explanatory material everywhere so you will learn a lot. The gift shop has nice books and explanatory materials. Bring your camera to Sloss; it's great for offbeat portrait work of your friends and family. more
