Built in the Gothic architectural style, it’s easy to see why Old Joliet Prison impressed people when it opened in 1858. But within 20 years, the correctional center was filled well past capacity, leading to unsanitary and dangerous conditions. Although people continually called for its closure, the prison housed offenders until the 21st century—including fictional inmates from several movies and television shows.

What a special visit! Great presentation! Hosts were excellent—knowledgeable and informative! Would’ve loved to be able to enter a cell or walk down the prison corridor, but understand that wasn’t possible due to unsafe structural conditions. I hope they are able to rehab the vandalized buildings for historical purposes and future tours.

A really great blend of Atlas Obscura and the local history museum! Kelli did her research (LOVED the bit in her presentation about the movies that were actually NOT filmed there...), and the guide for the walking tour portion was super knowledgeable about the grounds and history.

This was a really interesting tour. I took my kids, ages 10 and 13, and they loved it as well. The stories, fun facts, and novelty of the location kept their attention for the full two hours.

This was a fascinating look at a part of Chicago/Joliet history that I knew next to nothing about. I enjoyed learning about both the prison history and the film history.
