Not a jail. It's actually the remnants of a tree nursery. See http://www.dupageforest.com/PRESERVES/waterfallglen.html, where it says: "In 1907, the Lincoln Park Commission, a predecessor of the Chicago Park District, purchased 107 acres from a local landowner. A small part of the property was used as a plant nursery. Most of the land was used to gather black topsoil that would be hauled to Chicago as fill for creating the Lincoln Park area along the city's lakeshore."

Lot's of interesting things in Waterfall Glen.
