Let Me Out Of Here
Shot from within the Pritzker Correctional Facility.
I came upon this mystery while walking the
trail that runs alongside The Illinois and Michigan
Canal through Lemont. Of course, there's no indication what its purpose was. I first thought
that it might be a base for a crain or some sort of lifting device, but considering it's distance from the canal that seems unlikely.
Possibly the floor of an office shack? There's
no indication of any steps, only four heavy
duty threaded rods coming out of the top, three of which are folded over. The lower
levels are seperate blocks, the upper is one
huge slab. How and why was this done? A
section of the I & M Canal has been named
a National Historic Landmark.

Well, at least dating back to the building of the
I&M Canal through Lemont. This can be found
on Lemont's Heritage Trail along the canal.
Another one of those sites that has you wondering...what are the four crumbling pillars and what purpose did they serve on that small mound?
