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:
