The city of Birmingham has a rich history and there are many important sites and landmarks that reflect its storied past. Birmingham’s status as a former industrial hub can be experienced through a visit to the Sloss Furnaces, a national historic landmark, once the largest iron manufacturer in the world. Built in the late 1800s and operating for almost a century, the Sloss Furnaces played a large role in the development of the city. The furnaces now feature a dedicated museum, as well as scheduled events and concerts throughout the year.
