The newly built Historical Museum was designed as a replica of the first ranch-style homes constructed in the community by Rolling Meadows founder, Kimball Hill in 1953.  Displays of donated historical documents, photos and finishings of the 50s era are combined to create authentic interior spaces within the home.  The objective was to create a museum that did not feel like a museum.  Visitors who enter the house will feel they have been transported through time to the actual home of a 1950s Rolling Meadows homemaker.  The exhibit in the Kimball Hill Family Educational Center contains information on Kimball Hill, early days in the development of the City of Rolling Meadows, and displays of 50s memorabilia.  (Handicapped Accessible).
