No, no, no - not Mr. Spock. It's the other Vulcan - the Roman god of the fire and forge. Birmingham's Vulcan Statue is the largest cast iron statue in the world. It proudly symbolizes Alabama's prosperity being rooted in the iron industry. The statue isn't the only attraction here - the Vulcan Park is a serene setting for a stroll or picnic and the Vulcan Museum displays the history of Alabama.
