    This is the cemetery for the old Joliet Penitentiary and is no longer in use. It replaced the previous cemetery that opened in the 1800's that's located about .75 miles NorthEast. Monkey Hill is well maintained, although access is across a ditch that's often flooded. It's directly across the street from St. Mary's cemetery. It opened in 1936 and was used to inter the unclaimed bodies of inmates. The headstones were manufactured at the old Joliet Penitentiary. Vaults were not used - inmates were buried in pine boxes, and during new burials previously interred would be accidentally exposed.

    If you're interested in local history or the old Joliet Penitentiary, it's worth a visit.
