Lockport lies quietly nestled in the Des Plaines River Valley. Here, the Miami and the Potawatomi Indians portaged the Des Plaines and explorers Joliet and Marquette traversed these valleys scoured by glaciers. Gardens of long ago are tucked behind cast iron fences, when houses were on large plots often surrounded by stone walls. Prosperous merchants, canal contractors and boat owners built proud homes. Quaint, simple cottages (which can still be seen today) houses many of the canal workers. A variety of architectural styles that include Greek Revival, Victorian and Romanesque, as well as less ornate vernacular styles, color Lockport's streets.

Lockport is a treasure chest of history, a great community for families and/or singles. The Lockport office of Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group covers a wide variety of real estate properties.
