“The Dietrich Friedrichs house was built in 1906. This Victorian farmhouse is furnished to reflect the year 1917, as that was the year of the village’s incorporation.

Bessie Friedrich Barnes, a long-time resident of Mount Prospect grew up in the house. Ms. Barnes’ recollections and personal artifacts were crucial to the creation of this exhibit.

The two-story house has a parlor, dining room, kitchen, pantry, nursery, bathroom, and two bedrooms that portray the lifestyle of the Friedrichs’ at the beginning of this century. The Friedrichs were immigrants from Germany, a very common ancestry among Mount Prospect’s first settlers.” (Mount Prospect Historical Society website)
