The Mount Prospect Historical Society received a much-needed addition to its historic Dietrich Friedrichs home museum in downtown Mount Prospect recently.  Feldco Factory Direct, based in nearby Des Plaines, donated two state-of-the art entry doors for the 1906 home.

“These doors were badly needed for both security and aesthetic purposes,” stated Mount Prospect Historical Society Executive Director Gregory T. Peerbolte. “The fact that they look like the original wood will make them look appropriate on the house and their excellent construction will ensure that our employees and collection are safe from weather and intrusion.”

The new entry doors were placed at the east and west end of the Friedrichs home earlier this year.  They replaced doors that served faithfully for almost 20 years but had deteriorated due to the elements.

“Our organization is certainly grateful to the friendly and helpful staff at Feldco.  In these trying economic times, it pleases me to know that Feldco understands the value of our mission and has been a willing and generous partner,” continued Peerbolte.
