Letter: What to do with the Joliet prison

To the Editor:

What to do with the old Joliet prison?

It’s a large property that requires upkeep that costs considerable money.

Some of it has interest as a historical site such as the parts used in the “Blues Brothers” movie, the towers, a section of wall, the pond used to quarry limestone but much of it does not have tourism potential.

Perhaps an outdoor park for curiosity-seekers on a hiking or biking trail, sell the rest off for development, perhaps declare some of the buildings as historic landmarks.

There are a lot of limestone blocks that could be repurposed. Driving by it really looks creepy now.
