Mayor's Message

mayor nugent sqWelcome to the official Village of Manteno web site. The Village elected officials and Staff work hard to try and make information about the Village of Manteno readily available and easy for our citizens and visitors to access. Manteno is a great Community with a lot to offer and the web site is a great place to explore what is going on in the Community and to communicate with Village Officials.



Hendrickson Park - 255 E. Third St.

Hendrickson Park is located on the east side of the Village along East Third Street (County Hwy 9). The park was named for WILBUR HENDRICKSON, who served three terms as Village President from 1945-1953 and 1957-1961. Prior to this he was a Village Trustee for 14 years. One item on his agenda was to get the State of Illinois to abolish the "Dump" on the northeast side of the village. He felt this area was a health hazard and an eye sore. Mr. Hendrickson died before succeeding at this endeavor. However, when the land became avaiable, Russell Henrickson purchased this land and donated a section of it in honor of his brother.
