The Jacob Henry Mansion is a Historical City, State and National Landmark, boasting over 40 rooms with a delightful blend of past and present. This Award Winning Mansion, built in 1873, is known for its original beauty and old Victorian charm. Join us for our 3rd annual "All That Jazz" Mardi Gras Party! Treat yourself to our Homemade Jambalaya over Rice with Southern Cornbread. Enjoy the toe-tapping music of the New Orleans style- Four Starr Brass Band, as they bring the Louisiana sizzle to Joliet-and don't forget your boas, beads, umbrellas and Hurricane Drink-as always, our cash bar will be available. The Old Central Church is located on The Jacob Henry Mansion Estate. The beautifully decorated exterior and interior is a classic example of grand churches in the late 1800's. The chapel is completely remodeled, painstakingly kept in much of it's original condition, from the hand carved stained pillars to the massive domed ceiling and the working pipe organ. We welcome you to take some time to stroll through our historic church.
