The Village of Diamond, Illinois, located Southwest of Joliet, now has an eye-catching monument sign. The sign is comprised of Foamcraft, a lightweight synthetic material with a hard coat finish which makes the sign impervious to rot, termites, and moisture. The piers are the same synthetic material that looks like real stone and withstands fading and peeling. Monument Signs

Diamond, Illinois, is only 1.6 miles border to border, with a population of under 1400 people, but it is known for a mining disaster that happened on February 16, 1883, when the Diamond mine flooded, killing 72 miners.

With their new monument sign, the Village of Diamond can now extend a warm welcome to all who stop by. Make sure you have a sandwich at the Whistle Stop Cafe while you are there.
