Sloss Furnace in the Press
"At night, this old building, now a national landmark, still echoes with noises from its perilous past. Screams are heard, apparitions are seen, and on the second floor of the Blower Building, there's the sinister presence known as "Slag," an overly cruel foreman who can still be heard belittling his crew."
"There have been several apparitions seen at Sloss Furnace. In reviewing the picture that displays the workers that served at the facility in employment, witnesses to paranormal activity have been able to identify these two particular individuals in the picture. In addition to this, several other spirits are believed to linger around the facility. There are also several different other hauntings that are said to occur at this facility."

"Sightings have been recorded year round,

seem to happen during the months of September and October, usually

"Do you get anything else, like a name?" Patti asked me.
"Samuel," I answered quickly. Suddenly, Patti gasped and
said, "Look at your hand!" There was fresh blood on my
palm and yet, on close inspection, we found no visible sign - a
cut or an injury - for the source of the blood."
