The chapel at the closed and formerly abandoned Old Joliet Prison. Joliet was the site of Illinois's first state prison, opened in 1858. It house female inmates till a separate women's prison was built next door in 1896. The prison was distinct for its exterior Gothic design elements. The cells didn't have separate plumbing till a 1950's remodel! The prison was closed in 2002,and basically abandoned by the state except for 2004-5 when the TV drama "Prison Break " filmed its first season there. The city finally took possession in 2017 and opened parts of the badly decayed and vandalized prison for public tours....
