·      Tween Homeschool Hangout:  Stories of Sloss Furnace

Birmingham grew up to the tapping, slamming rhythm of coal and steel workers.  Sloss Furnace was the fiery heart of our Magic City for many years.    How was the steel made?   Who worked there?  What tools did they use?   Ty Malugani of the Sloss Furnace Museum will be here to share all about the history of Sloss Furnace.  He will be bringing tools and artifacts, and he may be persuaded to share the story of the famous  Ghost of Sloss Furnace, said to haunt Furnace Number One.   Ages 7-12.  Registration begins October 1st.     Contact Kristy at 439-5504 or nschild@shelbycounty-al.org for more information.
