Mount Prospect has undergone dramatic changes since its incorporation as a village in 1917. At that time, it was a small rural community of 300 people, but after population booms in the 1920s, 1950s, and 1960s, the town blossomed into a bustling suburb of Chicago. Out of these changes came landmarks like Randhurst Shopping Center and beloved local businesses like Hotter Than Mother's Music. These new additions sprang up alongside--and in place of--older sites. The transformation continues to this day, making each generation familiar with a different version of the town. Such significant developments can sometimes make local historic sites difficult to locate; the history, however, has not disappeared. It remains in the landscape, the bits and pieces left behind, and the collective memories of its residents. Mount Prospect Historic Sites aims to connect people to the history that can still be found all around Mount Prospect.
