Come to Mount Carroll for a one-day event or spend a few days and enjoy scenic drives and walks, a sense of discovery, and a great escape from crowds and commercialism. Have fun and relax with a picnic and disc golf in the park; a self-guided tour through our historic district; shopping in our friendly, helpful and unique retail stores and galleries; a tour of a nationally famous, unique haunted house; see motor bike racing at its best; and a live summer stock theater performance at Timber Lake Playhouse. Mount Carroll is also the home of the
Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies located on the former Shimer College campus. We nurture return visits and value those who make Mount Carroll their four-season getaway.
