Mount Prospect, part of Elk Grove Township and Wheeling Township, is a village in Cook County, Illinois about 22 miles northwest of downtown Chicago. Mount Prospect was incorporated as a village in 1917. As of the 2000 census, the village had a total population of 56,265. BusinessWeek named it The Best Place to Raise Your Kids in 2009.

Cook County, 20 miles NW of the Loop. Yankee farmers established homesteads in what became the heart of downtown Mount Prospect after signing a Potawatomi treaty in 1833. New Englanders cleared and farmed the land until 1843. Many of these settlers, however, moved west for larger claims, and were replaced by German immigrants, who planted the roots of a small rural community. By 1854, the Illinois & Wisconsin Railroad (later renamed the Chicago & North Western) ran through Mount Prospect, but it did not stop there until 1886.

As a result, the remaining Yankee families who wanted access to broader markets moved to the neighboring railroad towns of Arlington Heights and Des Plaines.

Meanwhile more German and Irish immigrant families bought up the available homesteads. In 1871, real-estate agent Ezra Carpenter Eggleston built a four-block residential subdivision on farmland south of the railroad. Eggleston named the area Mount Prospect because the village sat on the highest point in Cook County.

Eggleston went bankrupt, since the area failed to prosper until a railroad station was established. In 1900, the community still fell short of the three hundred people required for incorporation. A group of small businessmen known as the Mount Prospect Improvement Association pushed for official empowerment to solicit funds through taxation. In May 1917, the village immediately incorporated when a newborn infant became Mount Prospect's three-hundredth resident. William Busse, a local storeowner, served as the first president from 1917 to 1929.

During this period, Mount Prospect experienced business expansion and population growth that increased the number of residents to 1,225 by 1930. Although the area remained predominately farmland, a small industrial district appeared north of the railroad, which included a creamery, farm machinery retailers, a hardware store, a coal yard, and a general store.
