Which city carries the nickname “City of Steel and Stone?” Joliet’s once-thriving industrial plant rivaled Pittsburgh’s steel power. Explore the stone foundations that are more than 100 years old while an interpretive naturalist shares the fascinating stories of the men and machines that worked at the Joliet Iron Works Historic Site. Find out why the hard-working employees were happy when their shifts ended!

After the tour wraps up, or “the whistle blows,” continue the experience by meeting at MyGrain Brewing Co. to enjoy a refreshing locally brewed drink and admire another Joliet landmark, Union Station.

Participants are responsible for their own food and drink costs. All participants must be 21 or older.
