Mundelein has emerged as the potential new home of the recently privatized Winchester House nursing home.
The Lake County Board voted in May 2015 to privatize the long-standing nursing home and move the facility from its current location at Winchester Road and Milwaukee Avenue within two years.

Route 45. The property, located next to Dover Straits restaurant, is currently covered by soccer fields. READ MORE...
