Illinois: Oak Lawn, 1920: The McAninch Home, 9402 S. 55th Ave., Oak Lawn, was designated

a local historic preservation site in April 1999. Built by George Klein in 1920, the nine-room

frame structure is one of only a few Queen Anne bungalows in the seven-county Chicago

metropolitan area. Solidly built, the house survived a tornado (F5!) at 5:27pm on April 21, 1967,

although it required a new roof and 28 new windows. From Nov. 1940 to July 1985, the house

was owned and occupied by the family of James Daniel McAninch (b.1908, Chicago, Cook

County, Illinois; d. 1987) and his wife Lillian Alice (Rose) McAninch (b.1906, Chicago; d. 1985).
