Sloss Furnace is located in Birmingham, Alabama, and has long been labeled as one of the scariest places on Earth.
James Withers Sloss had construction of the furnaces completed in 1881, and in the April of 1882 began the production of iron. The facility continued production for nearly 90 years before being shut down.
By the 1920's there were nearly 500 employees, and the facility was producing up to 400 tons of iron per day.

The working conditions at Sloss were severe. High temperatures, dangerous equipment and poor air quality played a major role in more than several hundred deaths.
Ghost sightings, strange sounds, odd sensations, the feelings of being watched or followed; all are still reported even to this day.

Two of the more famous sightings are those of Theophilus Jowers and James Wormwood. Their ghosts have been sighted on numerous occassions and both have thereafter been identified in the companies employee photographs.
Theophilus Jowers slipped and fell into an active furnace. It is said that his death was so sudden that he more than likely felt no pain, and that is perhaps why he is still sighted on the catwalks going through his normal work routines.
James Wormwood is also said to have been overcome by methane gas, which caused him to fall into an active furnace. But it is rumored that since he was such a cruel taskmaster to the men he oversaw, that he was more than likely thrown into it instead.

The legends and ghost stories that surround Sloss Furnace are endless. Several documentaries have been shot within its boundaries. "GhostHunters" has even roamed its halls.

In 1981, Sloss Furnace became a National Historic Landmark, and has the distinction of being the only publicly held industrial site in the world. And in 1983 opened its gates to the public as a museum.
Today anyone can visit Sloss Furnace. You can schedule tours, parties, weddings, etc. And for the month of October it is transformed into a haunted house.
It is an amazing place, full of history. And other things. I would highly recommend visiting. But watch your back!
