Joliet Iron Works was once the biggest business in Joliet. Today, all that remains are the foundations of the blast furnaces, stoves, gas washers and other buildings that were part of the plant. But the remains tell the story of the early process of iron and steel production and of the people that worked there. Paved trails with some stairs and inclines. Owned by the Forest Preserve District of Will County.
