Illinois Waterway Visitors Center
Located at the Starved Rock Lock & Dam, the Illinois Waterway Visitors Center is owned and operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers. The visitor center interprets the building and maintenance of this system, as well as the history of water transportation in Illinois, beginning with the Native American canoe and ending with modern transportation. The center also provides up-close views of river barges and other watercraft as they "lock through" the Starved Rock Lock & Dam.
