Lockport is a historic city in Will County, Illinois, United States, located 30 miles southwest of Chicago. Lockport was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 12, 1975. The city was incorporated in 1853 and is situated along the Illinois and Michigan (I&M) Canal. Recently, it was named one of the fastest-growing suburbs in America, by Forbes Magazine. The scenic golf course, walking paths, vintage downtown, parks and recreation and accessibility to I-355 and 80 add to the city's appeal.Lockport was the headquarters of the operationally defunct Illinois and Michigan Canal. A section of the canal runs through Lockport, including the remains of the canal's Lock No. 1 from which the town received its name. The canal right-of-way is now the Illinois and Michigan National Heritage Corridor. Because of proactive efforts dating back several years, the city of Lockport is one of the best-preserved Canal sites in existence today."The city that made Chicago famous"Illinois is the nation’s most populous inland state. Its successful growth is due in large part to the Illinois and Michigan Canal, a revolutionary development that linked the Great Lakes to the Illinois and Mississippi rivers. The Canal was vital to the development of the city of Chicago and to the economic development of the Midwest; the Canal also fostered the growth of the small settlement that became the City of Lockport. The Des Plaines River Valley was a portage site for the Des Plaines River for the Miami and Potawatomi, and explorers Joliet and Marquette traversed the region on their journeys.GeographyLockport is located at ., which touches the village of Lemont.
