Sloss Furnaces, Birmingham

If you are a fan of the paranormal, then it is likely that you have already heard of Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama. There is so much activity here that the local police force are frequently called to deal with unexplained events. Sometimes they are relatively minor, but at other times they can include physical harm. The activity seems to peak during September and October which leads many to suggest that reports are just Halloween hoaxes. However, others insist that the activity is very real and that Sloss Furnaces is one of the most haunted places in Alabama.

The most well known ghost linked to Sloss Furnaces is probably James ‘Slag’ Wormwood a former foreman at the furnaces who died there in1906 when he fell in a pool of molten iron ore. Ever since, his fellow workers complained about seeing and feeling his presence. In 1926 a night watchman was actually injured when an unseen force pushed him from behind and a voice shouted at him to get back to work! In 1947, three supervisors where found knocked out on the boiler room floor! All three of them reported being approached by an angry man with horrific burns who demanded that they return to work. In 1971, another night watchman encountered what he describes as a half man half demon who attempted to push him up the stairs. Samuel Blumenthal, the night watchmen in question, refused to go upstairs which prompted the entity to begin beating him. When Samuel was examined later he was found to have severe burns where the blows had fallen.
