The lock and dam at the Illinois Waterway Visitor Center made it possible for barges to travel the entire Illinois River, when before they would have to load their cargo onto a smaller boat to continue traveling—an expensive and time consuming process. Today, watching barges and riverboats cross through the lock and dam at Starved Rock has become a common activity at the Visitor Center.
This engineering feat is truly a mastery over the waterway and this embroidered patch celebrates that! Mark yourself as a barge watcher with this colorful and easy to iron on patch!
