Nokomo Heights Public Housing

Description

Nokomo Heights public housing in the 2800 block of Kishwaukee Street. Several African American residents stand by the building. Built and operated by the county, Nokomo Heights was transferred to the Rockford Housing Authority in 1965. In 1969 the development was renamed Orton Keyes Court and many of the original buildings were torn down and replaced. These original buildings had provided housing for non-commissioned officers from Camp Grant during World War II.
