Photo of the week: The old schoolhouse

This week, our photo will be on the historical Cronin Schoolhouse.

On May 7, 2013, the Joliet City Council declared the schoolhouse a local landmark, and the Will County Historic Preservation Commission gave the building its annual preservation award.

Today, the one-room schoolhouse serves as a living history museum that hundreds of elementary school children visit each week.

Visit the college’s page on the extensive history of the more than 150-year-old building.
