  • More interesting than I expected. The visitor center panels are very informative and interesting about the history of steel in Birmingham.

  • Unbelievable what was accomplished back in the 1800’s. Free outdoor walking tour that has a map to follow with a lot of explanations of what your looking at. You can’t help but be amazed at this...

  • Take some time here, it's well worth 2 or 3 hours. My wife and I did the self-guided tour using the written guide pamphlet that leads you from place to place. We left with a thorough understanding of this amazing facility. We're glad people fought to save this piece of history.
  • I love industrial graveyards. This is amazing. And they’ve done a great job preserving old-school feeling with easy navigation. Take all the time you want. Learn some. Enjoy the history.
