Welcome! This web resource documents the ongoing restoration of the Mount Prospect Historical Society’s 1896 one-room Central School. The school is among Mount Prospect’s oldest and most historic buildings
After six years of fundraising, the building was moved to the Society’s museum campus, and is currently undergoing an adaptive restoration. When completed, the building will once again fulfill its historic roles of education center, community gathering space, and historic treasure.
