Vulcan Park – Birmingham, Alabama

Vulcan Park is located at the top of a mountain in Birmingham, Alabama.  It is home to the largest iron statue in the world, which locals like to call The Original Iron Man.

Visitors can take an elevator up to a walkway near the top of the statue.  The view of Birmingham from there is breathtaking.

Vulcan Park also includes a museum that explains the role of iron production during the industrial revaluation and how Sloss Furnace (a facility that produced iron and steel) was responsible for the massive growth of the city of Birmingham.
