Throwback Thursday:

We would like to wish George R. Busse a very Happy Birthday!
George R. Busse is the son of George L. Busse and the grandson of George Busse. Throughout the years, George R. Busse has donated over 400 objects to the collection of the Mount Prospect Historical Society. Many of these objects date back to the 1890s when Mount Prospect was still a small community. We are thankful that he has played such a large role in preserving the history of Mount Prospect!

This is a photograph of George R. Busse in 1969.

We are starting to set up for our Silent Movie Night! It will be taking place at the Mount Prospect Historical Society at 101-103 S. Maple St. The museum grounds open at 7:30 p.m. and the silent movies start at 8 p.m.

Movie goers will have an opportunity to purchase refreshments and ice cream, browse through the museum store, and take a peek inside the 1896 Central Schoolhouse which is currently undergoing restoration. Bring your chair or blanket and sit beneath the summer night skies as the Mount Prospect Historical Society takes you back to the early days of cinema.

We hope to see you there!
