The early inhabitants of Mokena could hardly imagine what had become of the suburban fabric that stretched as far south as southwest Chicago in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, owing to its proximity to the Chicago River.
The Chelsea settlement withered away, and growth was concentrated in the area that Allen Denny clad with a railway stop in Rock Island in 1852. The Rock Island Railroad was completed in the mid-19th century and was passing through Mokena on its way to Chicago. From Chicago, the suburban train increased services to the suburbs and New York City. After World War II Makena was put into a commuting orbit with the expanding metropolis, but growth was primarily focused on commercial development, not residential development.
When the village was incorporated in 1880, its population was 522, but by the 1940s it had grown to 657 and in 1950 to 662.
The ethnic composition of the village is 94.5% black, 4.7% white, 2.2% brown and 1.3% Hispanic, and the population is so distributed that there are no ethnic groups with more than one member in the top 1% of income. The poverty line is $18,000 for a family of four, including $6.2 for those 65 and older.
There are 4,848 housing units in the village, with a median household income of $50,000 a year for a family of four. At the 2000 census, 48.5% of children under 18 lived with them, 73.7% of them were married couples living together, 7.3% had a housekeeper without a husband and 16.8% were non-family.
The population of Mokena grew from 903 in 1950 to 1,848 in the 2000 census, an increase of 2.5% compared to the 1950 census. The Baptist Society was founded in the village in 1855, followed by the Methodist Society in 1870 and then the American Baptist Church in 1890.
Mokena became a market centre and a large agricultural area, and in the late 1870s it included a post office, a grocery store, an elementary school and several churches. The St. Louis Hotel and Ste.

You can change the range to any number of 999 miles or specify the minimum or maximum distances up to 999 kilometers. If the radius of the radius is more than 500 miles and there is no radius, or if there are too many cities but very few, then you should try to increase the number of cities returned by clicking here, which resets the result setting for all cities shown to everyone, regardless of population size and size.
