Lincoln Mall- (Freeport, IL)

Lincoln Mall, located in Freeport, IL, is by pure definition a rural mall that is on its last leg. Way upstate Illinois, nearing the corning of the Iowa and Wisconsin border sits the town of Freeport in Stephenson county, where a mall with one or two anchor stores would do well, and thus it did.

What I have read is the original anchor stores where a JCPenney, Eagle Market in the mall lot, and Menards Home Store. The JCPenney relocated to The Meadows shopping center, the Kmart was, up until January 2013. Menards built a far larger store along route 26, next to Wal-mart.

Here are the only pictures I got from January 2013:

I would greatly appreciate any input on the malls past, any pictures or stories, and thoughts on the malls future.

Feel free to comment and post below.

Thank you for reading.

  2. The menards used to be originally sears, but closed in the 80's due to the cherryvale mall sears.

  3. The little attachment on the side of the old menards/ sears was the autocenter. Though I forget what the store next to the mall was, next to dollar general, seperate from the mall.
