In 1889, the Mayor of Joliet, Patrick C. Haley, envisioned a "Castle on the Hill", overlooking the city. He commissioned Frank Shaver Allen, a nationally known architech and Egyptologist, to design the massive limestone structure which took over two years to complete. Inside you will see that all of the woodwork is original Oak, Cherr, and Mahogany. You will be surrounded by stained glass windows, intricate friezes, ornate adornments and six fireplaces. Today the Mansion is available for special events offering superb cuisine. Whatever the occasion, you'll want to select Patrick C. Haley Mansion for a truely memorable event.
