This North Shore suburb was developed as a model community in 1869. Strict zoning ordinances were set to ensure the preservation of nature while streets and homes were built along the natural contours of the land. This tree-lined village has been the proud recipient of the “Tree City USA” award since 1985. Downtown Glencoe contains many small specialty shops, services and restaurants. Glencoe is served by School District 35, which includes top rated elementary and middle schools. High School students can attend New Trier High School in nearby Winnetka, which is highly regarded for academic excellence. Glencoe’s active Park District maintains 44 parks and offers yearround recreation for all ages in both indoor and outdoor facilities. The 320-acre Chicago Botanic Garden is located to the west of the Village and offers various horticulture classes for enthusiasts.
