Welcome to Troop 23 Mount Prospect

The Troop was originally chartered in the spring of 1931, when several Mount Prospect members of the American Legion Post 525 felt that Mount Prospect deserved its own Boy Scout Troop, according to Ralph Hauptley, one of 16 charter members of Troop 23 and its first Eagle Scout. So, a group of Legionnaires formed the Troop and John Babb served as its first Scoutmaster.

For years the Scouts met at the old Central School, which is where the Mount Prospect Public Library now stands. The American Legion Post 525 served as the Troop's sponsor and continues to do so today. The Troop continued through the height of the Great Depression, and there was much camaraderie among the boys. That enthusiasm was maintained throughout the Depression and World War II, even though several alumni of the Troop lost their lives in the war. Troop 23 also boasted a drum and bugle corps in the early days.

Troop 23 continues to prosper and will continue to prosper through active participation of parents and interested adult leaders.

Scoutmaster - Dave Nelson

Committee Chair - Chris Maret
