The Mount Prospect Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which is committed to preserving the history of Mount Prospect, Illinois through artifacts, photographs and both oral and written memories of current and former residents and businesspeople. On its campus in the heart of the Village, the Society maintains the 1906 Dietrich Friedrich house museum and carriage house and an ADA-accessible education center. The Society is also in the midst of an adaptive restoration of the 1896 one-room Central School, which was moved to the museum campus in 2008.
