People must realize that Wilmington is the place to be. Yes we do have a few buildings in need of repair,and old ways of thinking, but Braidwood has never been anything more than a place to catch all of our rejects. Coalcity is to busy looking in the mirror to know what is going on and probually shouldn't be meationed. Elwood----well, thats too easy. Come on guys you gotta love us.

Hey- I live in Braidwood and I never have bashed Wilmington. I think all the little towns around here are OK. I go to Wilmington for the antique shops, and also we go sledding there in the winter, and go to the Mar.
We go to the restauraunts in Coal City too.
I don't think anybody "hates" anybody just because of what town you live in.

I have lived in Wilmington for several years and it is a quiet little town where nothing is going to happen. You just go from day to day and if you want to relax or have a good meal with your family you go to Kankakee or Joliet. I am not bashing the town - I just state the obvious. The city father like living 15 to 20 years in the past and keep progress from happening. Quaint to some is boring to the kids who move away and just come home to visit. I stay because I have it pretty well made. I don't live in luxury, but its a roof over my head and I keep my head above water. Wilmington over the past three or so years is beginning to fall behind even Elwood as far as being progressive. But this is what makes people here happy and so just accept it for what it is and move on with life.

When people find out I'm from Wilmington, they ALWAYS have a bad comment about the town. It does have a bad reputation.

I was always told that the term "yellow hammer" referred to construction workers.
