Sloss Furnaces produced iron for nearly 90 years and is now interpreted as a national historic industrial site. The dramatic scale and complexity of the plant's industrial structure, machines and tools make the Sloss collection a unique contribution to the ironmaking technology of the past. It is an important reminder of the hopes and struggles of the people who worked in the industries that made some men wealthy in Birmingham, Alabama and contributed to creating the "Magic City".
Today Sloss Furnaces is a unique place to have a wedding or other event. It has six unique rental areas and each one offers the opportunity for a one-of-a-kind, memorable event.
The lovely daughter of some long time friends, Jodi Messer, will be marrying Sean Mabry this summer. Their wedding will take place at Sloss Furnaces and she asked if I could paint a picture for a keepsake that she could also display at the wedding.
Congratulations Jodi and Sean!!
