Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark Birmingham, Alabama
Sloss Furnaces was once the largest manufacturer of pig iron in the
world. It stands today just as it did in the late 19th century — a
monument to the Industrial Revolution. With its web of pipes and
towering stoves, this unique National Historic Landmark provides
visitors a glimpse into Birmingham’s rich industrial heritage. It stands
with pride and is a symbol of where the “Magic” began for Birmingham.
Sloss Furnaces operated from 1882-1970 making it the longest continually
running blast furnace in Birmingham’s history.
