The Joliet Iron Works Historic Site was once a thriving industrial plant producing tons of iron and steel, but today's visitors need a little imagination to visualize the space in its heyday. While we can't rebuild the original blast furnaces, we can use artifacts to understand the site. But we wonder: If these objects could talk, what tales would they tell us? In Stories From Steel, a new exhibit showcasing Joliet Iron Works archival objects, the artifacts take over the narrative to share their stories.

This exhibit was developed by museum staff, with the support of The Nature Foundation of Will County.
