9780738582726: Mokena (Images of America)

Founded in 1852 by Allen Denny, a War of 1812 veteran and operator on the Underground Railroad, Mokena has for over 150 years been a center of commerce and a transportation hub. Meaning “turtle” in the ancient Algonquin tongue that was fluently spoken in this region for centuries, Mokena rose to prominence with the completion of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad in 1852 and would bustle in the post–Civil War era. Home to such unique industries as the Mokena Mineral Springs and the Mitchel Brewery in the 20th century, the village is today a renowned suburb of Chicago.

About the Author:

Join author and local historian Matthew T. Galik as he takes the reader on a journey through yesteryear in the photographs of the Robert Horras Collection. In this culmination of years of research through crumbling documents and musty archives, people will learn about Mokena as a rural Midwestern farm town, a place where everyone knew each other and that families and friends still call home.
