    1. I was recently at Sloss Furnace in the summer on a ghost hunt with “”. I also had the pleasure of having Adam Berry and Ami Bruni from Ghost Hunters and Chip Coffee physic Medium investigate with us. Anyway I was in my group in the long walkway and was getting frequent K-2 hits. I had a voice recorder running at the time and was asking qustions. When I got home the next day and reviewed my recordings, I had a response to most of my question which was the time my K-2 went off. We also had several cold spots. Our group did witness a black shadow at the very end of the walkway. It was a great experience.

    2. My paranormal group did an investigation here at night after hours. And several other times. We got several photos and actually tAlked with a spirit down in the boiler room. I would say yes Sloss is very haunted
