As of 2020, the city of Rolling Meadows is home to almost 24,000 residents. Since 2002, when it opened to the public, the historical museum, designed by Kimball Hall in 1953, has been one of the city’s main attractions. Designed as an exact replica of the ranch-style homes that were first constructed in the Rolling Meadows community, the museum doesn’t have the stereotypical museum feel, but rather the quality of a 1950’s home. Over the years, display items have been donated by the community, including historical documents, photos, and furnishings, giving museum goers a truly nostalgic experience as if they’ve been sent back in time.
In addition to the incredible museum, the neighborhoods throughout Rolling Meadows feature numerous parks and playgrounds. Countryside Park, Waverly Park, and Plum Grove Reservoir Park are popular favorites amongst residents for their expansive greenspace, dog parks, fishing piers, and hiking trails. Not only does Rolling Meadows offer plenty of outdoor recreation, but their indoor entertainment is just as abundant, with both recognizable and one-of-a-kind restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and more. These local hot spots got even hotter in 2018 when Rolling Meadows introduced Video Gaming. Conveniently, Awesome Hand Gaming, Illinois’ premier terminal operator is also located in Rolling Meadows.
