Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark
The tour will start at 5:45 p.m. with one of their knowledgeable tour guides. From 1882 to 1971, one of Alabama’s most iconic landmarks operated as a pig iron-producing blast furnace, invigorating the surrounding economy and propelled Birmingham to national status. It will be an awe-inspired, up-close experience of the size and power of the 20th-century blast furnace, machines, buildings, and other aspects of the furnace that made Sloss run for 90 years. Please wear closed-toed shoes.
The tour will take one hour and then we will walk across the street to the Back Forty Beer Company refreshments. If you can’t make the tour – please join us here around 7:00 p.m.
