Visitors often describe Glencoe as a quaint community far removed from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Located just 20 miles north of Chicago, the Village of Glencoe is bordered by Lake Michigan, the Cook County Forest Preserve and the Glencoe Golf Course. Glencoe is a quiet Village of approximately 9,000 residents with abundant parks, superb schools, convenient beach facilities and one of the most attractive business districts along the North Shore.
The Village of Glencoe has many historical and architecturally significant structures and is the home of the only known bridge to be designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Glencoe Historic Preservation Commission, established in December 1990 is responsible for public education about preservation; identification of landmark sites and structures; and advisory review of proposed alterations to landmarks and historic sites.
