Joliet Iron Works was once the biggest buisness in Joliet. Today, all that remains are the fragments of 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 purifying iron and of the people that worked there. Paved trails with some stairs and inclines. Part of the Forrest Preserve District.
