Right on the old Route 66 out of Chicago, this place is well worth stopping off at, but it could be so much more...
Came here because of the Blues Brothers, the exterior of this historical prison is impressive. Unfortunately it is falling into decay. Although there are plenty of fences and "No Trespassing" signs, it's easy enough for anyone to get inside. Unfortunately not everyone wants to preserve this place.
I hope that the State of Illinois can find enough money in the near future to restore at least a part of this monument, and open it up to the public. I'm sure there would be enough interest to pay for the costs. Maybe a donation from the movie/TV profits?
