Pine Manor’s sister home was built by Alex Lonnquest in 1930 during the crash. Lonnquist subsequently declared bankruptcy in 1931. This would have been one of the last homes he built which is still standing.
Ever wonder where the ‘MOUNT’ is in Mt. Prospect, Illinois?
Although Mount Prospect is noted for being a farming community started by German immigrants, it was actually two Irish men, Owen Rooney and Walter Burke, who first arrived here. The village was named by its first developer, Ezra C Eggleston. He called it MOUNT because, at 665ft about sea level, the village has the highest elevation in Cook County and PROSPECT because he felt that it was a promising area to settle. It is interesting to note that Mr. Eggleston never lived in Mount Prospect.
