Which city carries the nickname “City of Stone and Steel”? One hint, this city’s once-thriving industrial plant rivaled Pittsburgh’s steel power, and its stone foundations are more than 100 years old. At the Joliet Iron Works Historic Site, a naturalist will share the stories of the men who worked at this site, and the recipe to make iron and steel during this fascinating tour.
