[Sitings] Gaylord Building: Gateway to History

Posted on: May 18th, 2013 by Mame McCully 1 Comment

The Gaylord Building in Lockport, Illinois, a Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, offers visitors a chance to explore the history of the Illinois & Michigan Canal which linked Lake Michigan with the Mississippi River. 

Just 45 minutes from downtown Chicago, the Gaylord is the gateway to the I&M Canal National Heritage Corridor. There, visitors can explore the building's canal exhibits or have a meal in the Public Landing Restaurant located inside the historic building.

If you're not in town to experience the fun in person, go canal-side with this week's slideshow instead!

    It’s also a great place to attend their “Dinner” series, have a workshop or even celebrate a wedding! Great staff, too!
