Mundelein history:

A history page for Mundelein.

Peter Shaddle was the first settler about 1835. English Tradesmen then came to the area, naming it "Mechanics Grove." John Holcomb moved into the area bringing his leadership and expertise. In his honor the name of the community was changed to "Holcomb." In February, 1909, the Holcomb area incorporated under the name of "Rockefeller" in honor of railroad magnate John D. Rockefeller. In July, 1909, the village once again changed its name, this time to "Area," an acronym for Arthur Sheldon's sales school philosophy, "Ability, Reliability, Endurance, and Action." After a few years, the school failed and closed. In 1921, Archbishop (soon to be Cardinal) George Mundelein of Chicago, bought the property and authorized the construction of St. Mary's of the Lake Seminary. The village changed its name again in 1924 in recognition of Cardinal Mundelein's success. This time the name of Mundelein became permanent.
