Manteno

4.2
Manteno is a village in Kankakee County, Illinois, United States. The population is 9,300 in 2012. It is part of the Kankakee-Bourbonnais-Bradley Metropolitan Statistical Area.HistoryOrigins of village nameManteno was named after Manteno Bourbonnais, a daughter of Francois Bourbonnais, Jr. (thus her grandfather was the man for whom the city of Bourbonnais was named) and his Potowatami wife. A Potawatomi Indian name, it is a possible anglicization of manito or manitou, a Potawatomi word for spirit.Oliver W. Barnard, an early settler in this area, spelled her name Mantenau in one of his books. Other 19th century books spell it Mawteno and Manteno.Because she was a Metis, Manteno (spelled Monteno in the treaty, but considered incorrect, as the clerk also misspelled Bourbonnais) was given a section of land, now part of northeastern Kankakee County, by the treaty of Camp Tippecanoe of December 20, 1832.IncorporationBoth Kankakee and Iroquois counties were part of Will County, Illinois before the State Legislature granted a plea of Kankakee's citizens and permitted them to incorporate in 1853.The present Township of Manteno was then the east half of the Township of Rockville. On March 12, 1855, the town's petition that the area become the Township of Manteno was granted by the county's Board of Supervisors.
