Located just off the official “Route 66” path and
listed in the “National Register of Historic Places”, Lockport, Illinois
is most famous for the man-made “I&M Canal” which linked the Great
Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. Located in Lockport was the I&M’s headquarters and “Lock No. 1”
and is how the city received its name. Lockport
today is one of the best-preserved canal sites in existence and is known as… "The City that Made Chicago Famous.”
in 1903, the “Hamilton House Hideaway”, a Boutique B&B Guest House
Inn, is established entirely in a unique spacious and private
2 bedroom “flat” (vintage
house apartment) in a large historic “Arts and Craft” style two-flat house. It’s chock-filled with historic
artifacts and antiques relating to Lockport, Illinois, Chicago, Will
County, I&M Canal, and "Route 66" History!
