Flashback Friday:

Today we are flashing back to the Moehling home that was located at 8 East Northwest Highway. John C. Moehling was an important figure in the early development of Mount Prospect. He ran the first general store and post office. He was also the person who convinced John Meyn to move to Mount Prospect from Arlington Heights, so that the town could have a blacksmith. His house was built in 1890 and it is an example of classic Victorian architecture. The magnificence of his house represented his important role in the community. John C. Moehling is considered one of Mount Prospect’s founding fathers.

Below are three pictures showing the Moehling home throughout the early 20th century. Click on each picture to learn more about the house.

Do you remember the Moehling house? Do you remember when it was torn down? Share your stories in the comments!
