Ottawa, Illinois river system is a major part of North America’s over 25,00 miles of river that connects the state to Lake Michigan through Chicago and to the Mississippi River. It is through this system that river barges transport thousands of tons of materials on a daily basis. Ottawa has a rich history and home to several historical homes, estates and landmarks, like the Reddick Mansion. Each year millions of travelers pass through Ottawa on their way to the Starved Rock State Park. The road through Ottawa is nicknamed “The Scenic Gateway.” Ottawa leads the country in the skydiving business and home to Skydive Chicago, the largest and most successful.
Years ago, in the early 1900’s, the watch dial industry was a huge part of Ottawa’s economy. Unfortunately, back then people didn’t understand the dangers of radium that was used to paint the components. The women were even instructed to lick the tips of their paintbrushes to keep them sharp. The workers had been assured that the paint was safe and many of the women used the glowing paints to do their fingernails. Needless to say, a large portion of these workers developed symptoms of radiation poisoning including anemia and many died young. A documentary was produced in 1986 to bring to light what happened to these women known as the “Radium Girls.” The documentary interviewed survivors who were left to deal with the aftermath as they struggled to receive medical help as well as compensation for their work-related illnesses.
Ottawa, like many cities has suffered from tragedies like the one that happened to the female workers at the watch shops. Thankfully today, we understand the dangers of working with hazardous materials and for the most part, there are greater protections for workers. The people of Ottawa work hard though and love their city with its scenic lakes and tranquil charm.
