Moving to Joliet
Joliet is a bustling city just 30 miles from Chicago. It's home to a steadily-growing population, earning a spot among the largest cities in the state of Illinois.

The History of Joliet
The first recorded history of the area that's now Joliet began in 1673, when Louis Jolliet and Father Jacques Marquette camped on a mound that later became the city. In 1834, the village was laid out, planned by James B. Campbell. He named the community Juliet after his daughter, and the town was briefly incorporated. However, residents soon voted to reverse the incorporation in order to save money on local taxes.
In 1845 the community was renamed Joliet and was reincorporated in 1852. The Rock Island Railroad arrived in the town that same year, drawing new development and residents. Throughout the years, many manufacturing industries have been attracted to the area, including steel mills, brick companies, horseshoe factories and clothing companies.
Because the Joliet economy has historically depended on the manufacturing industry, it's had to overcome several challenges over the years with the ebb and flow of the national economy. Although its unemployment rates are slightly higher than the state's average, Joliet is in the process of evolving from a manufacturing economy to a commuter-based suburb, with many locals traveling to Chicago for work.
