The Alabama Foundation for Paranormal Research conducted an investigation of Sloss Furnaces in 2003. Here’s what they had to say: “There is no doubt Sloss is a hot spot for paranormal activity. During our investigation, we pulled data that confirms through our scientific methods and approach that energies are present and cannot be explained. Sloss is one of the most paranormally active places our team has investigated.”
Two psychic investigators from the TV show “AIRLINE!” investigated Sloss Furnaces in 2005. During the middle of the recording, one of the investigators began bleeding all of the sudden from a cut on his right hand, halting the investigation. Even though the investigation was halted, the camera crew was still able to catch images of the ghostly apparitions on film.
