2:20 - Benjamin F Heiny Residence
703 N Franklin

This home, known as the B F Heiny House, was rental property until after the turn of the century.  Joseph S Conner and his family were tenants in 1900 and the Heinys moved in sometime later. We are still working on the identity of the original owner. Benjamin Heiny came to Kirksville in 1867 as a student in Baldwin’s new Normal School and remained the rest of his life.  He was Adair County Clerk, owned the Normal Bookstore, and was owner/editor of the Kirksville Journal.  In 1891, he and a partner organized the National Bank of Kirksville.
