Golf Mill Shopping Center


Niles, Illinois - 1967

The grounds of the outside Mill area, with its water wheel, bridges and pools with goldfish. Their current website.

I love Golf Mill Mall! Why? Simply because the inside hasn't been updated since probably the day the mall was enclosed. Old 70s brown decor with a few minor changes along the way including a Target, Value City Furniture and the ripping of the water fountain in center court. I love this site!

Just wanted to point out that the indoor portion of this mall was created around 1986 or so (I used to sneak in there when they were building it). To my knowledge, it has not been updated and appears very, very 80s, but not 70s. In the 1960s and 70s, the mall was outdoors except for the anchors, such as JC Penny & Sears (still in operation today). It's little mill pond - along with much of its charm - disappeared when it was enclosed.

Not the classiest mall in the world - once in a while I go to Sears - but they have an arcade with old videogames / pinball machines (including Funhouse, the best pinball machine ever).

I seem to recall a pool with multiple fountains there - lit from underwater with different colored lights (about 1970). I was just a little kid, then, and I remember being amazed at the "colored water" (so VIVID at night!): dad had to explain to me that it was the lights that made the fountains show up in different colors. I oughtta drop back there and see if anything looks the same...

I used to work at Lyttons, which was right across from the old mill. Lyttons closed in the mid 80's It was one of the nicer stores in an otherwise middle of the road (demographically) mall. I stopped at the mall in October and barely recognized it. There doesn't seem to be a big draw, unless you can't find a Target anywhere else.
