Shimer Square it is!

Mount Carroll Mayor Carl Bates shows Economic Growth Corporation Administration Director Beth Payne the result of the coin toss held at Mayfest Saturday afternoon, May 25, confirming the campus and buildings will now be officially known as Shimer Square. The winning name along with Shimer Woods had each received 94 votes in a recent election to rename the former Campbell Center campus, which has been acquired by Rock Island-based Economic Growth Corporation. A new website is to be launched soon showcasing a new video of Economic Growth’s redevelopment vision.
