Help us further showcase the Old Joliet Prison to the world by volunteering for our Community Volunteer Cleanup Days - Saturdays from 8am - 12pm.
A combined effort from union workers, contractors, and community members resulted in around two hundred volunteers on site this morning for a total of roughly 600 volunteer hours.
The hard-working Union members of the Three Rivers Construction Alliance helped install a new sidewalk between the parking lot and East Sallyport at the prison.
The re-opening of the Old Joliet Prison and its tours were covered by the Washington Post and author Genevieve Bookwalter. The piece was picked up by several news syndicates across the nation.
