Home built by Civil War Union vet is demolished

A home in suburban Mokena that was built by a Civil War veteran was demolished after years of neglect, despite historians’ efforts to save it. Thomas Kiniry fought for the Union in the 100th Illinois Volunteer Infantry before buying a lot at 11031 McGovney Street in Mokena. He eventually built a home there. Historians last year launched an effort to landmark the building, but its owner decided to tear it down after discovering significant termite and water damage, officials said. [Daily Southtown]
