The Patick C Haley Mansion, built in 1889 is a remarkable mansion that stands three-and-a-half stories high, with rough-facing limestone walls and massive front and back porches. Original woodwork still adorn the building’s interior, along with stained glass windows, detailed artwork and six fireplaces.
If you look on the front porch, cut into the stone are Garlic insignias, in honor Mr. Haley's Irish heritage, Gaelic insignias were cut into the stone.
This landmark is nominated as a fine architectural example of Richardson Romanesque style. Due to high construction costs, these examples are very rare. Mr. Patrick Haley was an active politician who served as City Attorney, Ward Alderman, and Mayor of Joliet. The Haleys entertained lavishly, and their guest lists included many politicians, city founders and newspaper publishers. In past years the Haley home had been used a funeral home, and it currently serves as a banquet and special occasion facility.
The conservatory and ballroom accommodates 450 for dinner. The outdoor ceremony site is complemented by arbor and pagoda structures nestled among ponds, massive pines, and beautiful flowers. Whatever the occasion, choose Patrick Haley Mansion for a truly memorable event.
