Mundelein is a village in Lake County, Illinois, United States and a northern suburb of Chicago. Per the 2020 census, the population was 31,560. The community now known as Mundelein has been inhabited since at least 1650, when the Potawatomi people were known to have been trading with French fur traders. Peter Shaddle (for whom a street is named) was the first known settler, building a log cabin in the area now owned by St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in 1835. The next settlers were tradesmen escaping from England's industrial depression, and named the city "Mechanics Grove" The community grew and (while still unincorporated) changed its name to "Holcomb", in honor of John Holcomb, a person who was active in the region's development. In July 1909, the community became "Area", after a local educational entrepreneur named Arthur Sheldon, who bought 600 acres (2.4 km²) near town and built a school on it. At one time, it boasted 10,000 students, many of them women (which was unusual for 1909). In 1915, Archbishop George Mundele in (later Cardinal) of Chicago purchased the property from Sheldon after the Area campus closed to re-establish the Archdiocese's University of Saint Mary of. the Lake. The original Village Hall, built in 1929 with a few additions over the years, was used until June 2014. In the 1970s the community was largely residential with a little light industrial development.

History

Mundelein is the primary city name, but also Hawthorn Wds, Hawthorn Woods, Long Grove are acceptable city names or spellings. The community now known as Mundelein has been inhabited since at least 1650, when the Potawatomi people were known to have been trading with French fur traders. Peter Shaddle (for whom a street is named) was the first known settler, building a log cabin in the area now owned by St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in 1835. The community grew and (while still unincorporated) changed its name to "Holcomb", in honor of John Holcomb. The Holcomb area incorporated in February 1909 under a new name, "Rockefeller", a reference to businessman, John D. Rockefeller. In July 1909, the community became "Area". This name change was requested by a local educational entrepreneur named Arthur Sheldon, who bought 600 acres (2.4 km²) near town and built a school on it. At one time, it boasted 10,000 students, many of them women (which was unusual for 1909). In 1915, Archbishop George Mundele in (later Cardinal) of Chicago purchased the property from Sheldon after the Area campus closed to re-establish the Archdiocese's University of Saint Mary ofthe Lake, also known as the Mundeleins Seminary. In 1925, the Village Board passed an ordinance changing the village's name to MundeleIn. The original Village Hall, built in 1929 with a few additions over the years, was used until June 2014. In the 1970s the community was largely residential with a little light industrial development.
