@2200 W Jefferson St Hawk Subaru now

House of Plastics

2210 West Jefferson Street, U.S. Route 52, Joliet, Illinois. Springfield Avenue is seen coming from the north, teeing into Jefferson. The Cities Service and Standard gas stations are long gone, and Jefferson is now a 4-lane road. The House of Plastics building was torn down sometime between August 2015 and July 2016. Hawk Subaru occupied the lot to the east, until 2021, where the cars are parked. View looks south.
