Nestled deep in a city full of new businesses and fancy car dealerships lies a piece of history with a haunting background. Sloss furnaces was operated as a pig iron-producing blast furnace from 1882 to 1971. Over the course of its actual industrial existence, there were many tragic deaths that occurred there. Whether it be someone crushed in a grinder, or melted in a furnace, Sloss had it all. This was back when laborers would work in the harshest conditions, especially those who worked near the furnaces in the dead of winter. Many explained it as being burned on one side of their bodies, and frozen on the other side.

Well, nowadays, its still used as an iron mill, but the main buildings of the place aren't used, these are also the same buildings which are said to be the most haunted, which me and my friends quickly found out for ourselves... We first traveled to Sloss Furnaces in late May, 2006. We had never been to this place before, nor did we know if we were allowed there. We walked on inside and found some workers working on the other side of the property and asked them if we could hold an investigation.
The boss there told us yes, as well as explained some of the history of the place. He also shared some of his own personal sightings in the place. So, he let us go on out there and investigate the place, we heard many sounds and saw many things while we were there. Including, a pipe swinging on its own free will, the sounds of footsteps on the catwalk, when no one was there, as well as a full body apparition step back into the shadows. I could explain some of the more serious stuff that we've seen there, but it would be better if you saw it for yourself.
So, check out the hauntings and let me know what you think, thanks for reading. Be safe, and happy hauntings.
