Share post:

JOLIET, IL – History enthusiasts and curious locals are offered a unique glimpse into the industrial past of Joliet, long known as the “City of Steel and Stone,” at the Joliet Iron Works Historic Site. 

On Sunday, Nov. 26, from 9:30-11 a.m., visitors can explore the storied stone foundations of the city’s once-booming ironworks. As they tread through the remnants of an era when Joliet rivaled Pittsburgh’s steel fame, an interpretive naturalist will unveil the tales of labor and ingenuity that once fueled the site. 

This free event, open to those 16 and over, requires registration by Nov. 25 at 815-722-9301 – a rare opportunity to step back in time and witness the bedrock of Joliet’s rich industrial heritage.
