Sloss Furnaces originally opened as an iron-producing blast furnace in 1882, and closed down in 1971. It was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1981. Currently it serves as an entertainment venue for concerts and festivals, and is also routinely rated as one of the most haunted places in America. There is an annual Halloween celebration called Sloss Fright Furnace held at the venue each year.

20th Street – Birmingham, Alabama
