Event details

Joliet’s once-thriving industrial plant rivaled Pittsburgh’s steel power and was the attraction for many immigrants coming to this area. You and your dog are invited to explore the stone foundations with an interpretive naturalist. On this 1-mile hike along the interpretive trail, you and your hound will get a brief introduction to the industrial past of the Joliet Iron Works.
