Daily Herald report

Santa will take Route 45 in Mundelein to Courtland Street and drive beneath the viaduct to the Fort Hill Heritage Museum, 601 E. Noel Drive, to visit with well wishers from 11 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. The museum will host an open house in the former Soo Line railroad depot, which was refurbished and converted for its use. The old ticket agent's desk, the original safe and waiting room benches remain and the baggage room contains a wagon loaded with trunks, milk cans and equipment as it was in days gone by. Visitors can browse the exhibits highlighting local history, including a 1774 flint lock musket, turn-of-the-century tools and other items. Photos with Santa, gifts and refreshments are part of the free event sponsored by the Historical Society of the Fort Hill Country. Call (847) 566-7743.
