Beginning January 13, the Mundelein Historical Commission will premiere a limited weekly series on the Village Facebook page titled, “How Well Do You Know Mundelein?” This will be a weekly photo quiz that challenges followers to test their knowledge of Village landmarks. This is not a contest and there are no prizes. The only reward is testing yourself, enjoying the game, and hopefully, learning something new about Mundelein’s rich history.
The initiative will work like this: every Wednesday, a photograph taken somewhere in or near Mundelein, will be posted on the Village Facebook page. Players will be asked to identify the location. Answers are submitted using the Facebook Comment feature. The next day the answer will be posted with a brief history of the location. The first person to identify the location correctly will be recognized.
Most of the weekly postings will feature a picture of a building, a structure, a natural area, or a piece of artwork. You will be asked to identify the location and sometimes provide additional information about the location. Each week we will ask the followers to post a favorite memory of the site, or attach a photo of the location from another time.
Photo's may be of obscure locations, or common locations taken from a less common vantage point. The images are intended to be challenging, and thought-provoking. The “How Well Do You Know Mundelein” community engagement initiative will run for as long as there is interest or until we run out of photos.
Fun with Mundelein History!
