About Lockport

Lockport, Illinois

 

 

 

Lockport is a historic city in Will CountyIllinoisUnited States, located 30 miles southwest of Chicago. Lockport was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 12, 1975. The city was incorporated in 1853 and is situated along the Illinois and Michigan (I&M) Canal. Recently, it was named one of the fastest-growing suburbs in America, by Forbes Magazine. The scenic golf course, walking paths, vintage downtown, parks and recreation and accessibility to I-355 and 80 add to the city's appeal.

Lockport was the headquarters of the operationally defunct Illinois and Michigan Canal. A section of the canal runs through Lockport, including the remains of the canal's Lock No. 1 from which the town received its name. The canal right-of-way is now the Illinois and Michigan National Heritage Corridor. Because of proactive efforts dating back several years, the city of Lockport is one of the best-preserved Canal sites in existence today.

Created in 1945, the Lockport Township Park District provides park areas and recreation programs in order to enrich the quality of life of the community. The Park District has created many opportunities of renovating and beautifying existing parks and initiating the building of a number of new parks in recent years such as Brent Hassert Park, Rotary Park, Sunset Park, Theodore Marsh Playground, Willow Walk, and Clover Ridge Park to name a few. Each location offers an array of recreational experiences that includes one or more of the following: open play and open spaces, playgrounds, areas for sports such as soccer and baseball, trails for outdoor fitness, a place for games such as horseshoes and volleyball, pavilions for family picnics and parties, spray parks and handicap access.

Museums

 

 

 

 


An interesting feature of Downtown Lockport is its four museums all within walking distance of one another. These museums hold collections of importance to the city, county, state, and country. From time to time they also host traveling exhibits from as far away as the Smithsonian.

Lockport also has a unique outdoor museum known as the Lincoln Landing. Directly adjacent to the I&M Canal, the Lincoln Landing contains a number of historical markers that visitors can explore.

The Gaylord Building played a vital role in one of the great enterprises of the 19th century: the Illinois & Michigan Canal. A landmark since 1838, its many tenants and uses exemplify the canal’s commercial success as the key to mastery of the American mid-continent. This handsome limestone warehouse originally stored canal construction materials and later housed a variety of commercial ventures. Today it is a national example of adaptive re-use and serves as a gateway to the I&M Canal National Heritage Corridor. Guests can explore the heritage of the region in the exhibition galleries, and dine in the renowned Public Landing Restaurant.

The Gaylord Building is a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Located in the original 1837 Canal headquarters building, the Illinois and Michigan Canal Museum offers 10 rooms filled with artifacts, pictures and documents relating to the construction and operation of the Canal, as well as period items specific to the region during the height of the Canal’s operation.

The Lockport Gallery celebrates Illinois through changing exhibits featuring paintings, drawings, sculptures, quilts and other media created by the state’s artists and artisans. These rotating, theme-based exhibits are supplemented and showcased through educational events, group tours and outreach programs for all ages.

An Illinois State Museum (ISM) facility, the Lockport Gallery is located in a structure that is itself a work of art and history. The historic Norton Building was constructed on the banks of the Illinois and Michigan Canal in 1850 to serve as a grain-processing facility. Today the building is a multi-use facility housing residential lofts, offices, commercial space and the Lockport Gallery. The Gallery’s space gracefully incorporates the building’s original features, including large windows — once arched portals used for loading and unloading — high ceilings and hardwood floors.

Maintained by the Lockport Township Park District, the Gladys Fox Museum is located in the 1839 Old Congregational Church. Beautifully restored, this historic building is now home to the museum’s collection of historical photographs and memorabilia celebrating Dellwood Park and the Illinois and Michigan Canal.

Newly constructed by the Give Something Back Foundation, the Lincoln Landing is a spectacular open air park and museum. The park shows the original I & M Canal lines with a statue of Lincoln contemplating the canal. Bronze medallions are placed all about the park with historical information. Each medallion then leads you to another with connected information.
