Minonk's Residential Community
Minonk's residential area is a pleasant blend of new homes with many fine older
homes. People in Minonk take pride in their homes. Houses are well maintained
and landscaped. There is an ample supply of carpenters, plumbers, and
electricians for building new homes or for remodeling older ones. House lots
and construction is relatively cheap compared to communities closer to
Bloomington and Peoria.
Minonk currently has two large residential development areas. The Builta
addition is located at the southeast edge of Minonk and the Millennia Park
Subdivision is located directly west of the New Millennium Sports Park at the
north edge of the city.

Minonk is famous for its many brick streets which have
been in use since 1915 and give a unique and quaint character to the city.
Minonk had many wealthy businessmen who built fine
Victorian homes in the late 1800's. Many of these homes survive today and are
being restored for modern living.
