A Message from the Executive Director

Glencoe Chamber of Commerce

Dear Glencoe Friends,

The Board of Directors of the Glencoe Chamber of Commerce is

pleased to bring you the 2011-2012 Glencoe Community Guide.

I would like to ask you take a few moments to look through it

and note what a valuable resource the Guide is for information

about Glencoe’s businesses, services and stores, as well as

for many Village and general community services. You will find

complete listings of all Chamber businesses, both alphabetically

and by category, and contact information for numerous other

organizations. Please keep the Guide on hand throughout the

year as a reference.

The Chamber had a very successful 2010, sponsoring a number

of activities and events that enhance the enjoyment of life in

Glencoe and promote our excellent business community. We

were proud to offer the Farmers Market, 4th of July Children’s

Carnival, Movies on the Green, the third annual Glencoe Festival

of the Masters, Halloween Hello, a very well-attended Chamber

Annual Meeting, Light the Lights and event-filled Saturdays in

December. Also, last June we reintroduced the Sidewalk Sale.

For 2011, we plan to hold those events again, which have

become Glencoe traditions, and we hope you will take part in

them. I am pleased to announce that this summer the Glencoe

Farmers Market will be under the management of Lydia Davis who

also runs the Ravinia Market. Starting with June 11, please stop at

the Market every Saturday through October. You will find some of

Glencoe’s favorite vendors returning, plus some exciting additions

to the Market.

Adding to the strength of the Glencoe Chamber are eleven new

members. We are delighted to welcome the following members

to the Chamber this year: Trent Batchelor at Edward Jones,

Winnetka-Glencoe Patch, LaLonde Tutoring, North Shore Natural

Medicine, Moksha Worldwide, Loewy Consulting, Parkway Drugs,

a Walgreens Pharmacy, New Trier Township, CG Jewelers,

N Dobos Architecture, and Three Twelve Tudor. Please be sure

to patronize these new members and all the other fine Chamber

member businesses. If your business does not currently enjoy

membership in the Glencoe Chamber of Commerce, we would

welcome you to be part of an organization that works to enhance

the success of its members and the economic vitality of the entire

Glencoe business community.

Glencoe is such a desirable place in which to live, work, enjoy

recreational activities, volunteer---and to shop, dine, run errands,

schedule appointments. Whatever you need to do, it’s all right

here, in Glencoe! You will find quality, value and friendly, informed

service when you patronize our local stores and businesses. And

you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping to keep

Glencoe the thriving, inviting town we want it to be.

Sincerely,

Sally Sprowl

The Village of Glencoe is a residential lakefront community that was

incorporated in 1869 and in 1914 became the first community in Illinois

to adopt the council-manager form of government.

In 1921, the Village of Glencoe became one of the first communities

in Illinois to adopt a zoning ordinance and is still considered a model

community in terms of land use and zoning control. The Village of

Glencoe was also the first community in Illinois to cross-train officers

in both police and fire fighting duties. The fully integrated Public

Safety Department now performs all police, fire and emergency

medical services. Since March of 1994 to date, the Glencoe Public

Safety Department has been recognized as a nationally-accredited

Law Enforcement Agency. In 2004, the Department also became

an internationally accredited Fire Agency, making it the only fully

integrated Public Safety agency in the world accredited in both law

enforcement and fire service.

community human relations issues to promote and encourage

mutual respect, understanding and goodwill in the Village and to

provide educational programs on human relations issues.

The Forum is comprised of nine members appointed by the Village Board. If

The Village Caucus is a non-partisan group that allows all

registered voters of Glencoe to participate directly in their local

government. It seeks to avoid contested elections. The Caucus

consists of three bodies: 1) The Village Nominating Committee,

which is charged with the responsibility of seeking out the best

candidates to serve on the Village, Park District and Library Boards;

2) The School Board Nominating Committee, which identifies

individuals to represent Glencoe on the New Trier School Board

Nominating Committee (the body which slates candidates to serve

on the New Trier School Board) and strives to identify dedicated,

well-qualified candidates to serve on the Glencoe District #35

School Board; and 3) The Advisory Council, which oversees and

advises the Village and School Board Nominating Committees, as

gle n c o e ch a m b e r of co m m e r c e | 2011 co m m u n i t y gu i d e

needed, and is responsible for raising funds to support the caucus

system. Residents interested in serving on the Village Nominating

Committee should contact info@glencoecaucus.org. Residents

interested in serving on the School Board Nominating Committee

should contact schoolcaucus@glencoecaucus.org. More

information on the process is available at www.glencoecaucus.org.

cu s t o m e r Pa r k i nG

Short-term parking (2 hours or less) is found on most streets in

the business district. The time limitations are enforced from 7 a.m.

- 5:30 p.m. daily with the exception of Sundays and the following

holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day,

Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. A Village ordinance requires that

vehicles be moved a distance of at least 1000 feet if parking for

more than the two hour limit. Shoppers who need to park for longer

than two hours can park in the four hour parking zone on the north

side of Park Avenue in front of the Glencoe Union Church. While

the four hour zone may not be as convenient as the short term

spaces, the parking is free and customers are encouraged to use

it. In addition, the commuter lot is available for free parking Monday

through Friday after 10 a.m. and all day on Saturdays, Sundays and

holidays.

co m m u t e r Pa r k i nG

Commuters, employees and customers may purchase permits at

the Village Hall allowing them to park all day in various lots around

the train station. They are available at a cost of $270 for an annual

permit or $75 for a quarterly permit. Individual daily permits can be

purchased for $2.00 each. Permit parking in the commuter lot is

enforced weekdays only until 10 a.m. Free commuter lot parking is

available after that time, as well as on weekends and holidays.

em P loy e e Pa r k i n G

Employees of businesses located in the Village can obtain free

permit parking passes allowing them to park for free (as spaces

are available) in one of several permit zones. Unless otherwise

specified, all permit zones are enforced Monday-Saturday.

Employees wishing to obtain a permit must contact the Public

Safety Department, provide proof of employment within the Village

and not have any outstanding parking citations.

The New Trier Township High School District consists of a

comprehensive four-year high school on two campuses. Serves

the North Shore suburban communities of Glencoe, Kenilworth,

Wilmette and Winnetka, most of Northfield, and parts of Glenview

Offers a comprehensive curriculum of 300 courses, with several

levels in each academic subject in each year. Students may work at

different levels in different subjects.

Offers one of the nation’s first advisement programs, in which a

teacher may serve as an adviser to some 25 students, meeting

years. An adviser is the student’s first resource in matters of personal

adjustment and academic counseling. The adviser assignment takes

the place of one period of the teaching responsibility.

The Glencoe Park District is proud to have served the residents

of Glencoe for nearly 100 years. Our three unique facilities - Takiff

Center, Watts Ice Center, and Glencoe Beach - offer numerous

quality recreational programs and activities to enhance and enrich

your life.

The Takiff Center hosts programming year round for tots through

adults, including fitness and sports, preschool programs, music and

drama, creative arts, cultural explorations and much more. During

the summer at Glencoe Beach, residents can enjoy a leisurely day

in the sun or take part in sailing, kayaking, or beach volleyball.

During the winter, Watts Ice Center offers a variety of programs,

including figure skating, hockey, curling, and broomball.

The Park District has experienced many exciting changes in the

past year. Residents are enjoying the expanded Takiff Center,

exploring the new rooms that cater to a wide variety of programming

and offer rental spaces for family celebrations, parties, and

meetings. Additionally, the District recently completed a Strategic

Plan. This document is an essential planning tool that will guide

decisions about program, facility, and service improvements during

the next five years. Finally, staff is busy planning a full year of

exciting events to recognize the District’s Centennial Anniversary,

taking place in 2012!

The Park Board would like to thank the residents for their continued

support and patronage of the Glencoe Park District, its programs

and facilities.

Intersection of Park Avenue and Vernon Avenue Circa 1920s. - Glencoe Historical Society

Archives

his t o r y of Gl e n c o e

gle n c o e ch a m b e r of co m m e r c e | 2011 co m m u n i t y gu i d e

Each May, Glencoe’s second graders travel about the business

district, looking at pictures of intersections at various times in history

and ask what has changed over time. What was “then” and what is

“now?” In fact, Glencoe may have changed over the past years, but

physically, it looks similar to the town that began to grow in the late

19th century.

Glencoe started as an agricultural hamlet—home to farms, a lumber

yard and stagecoach stop—but over time evolved into a suburban

community with a local business district. Homes that were built at

the time Glencoe was incorporated, l869, still stand tall today next to

those built in the 1920s, 1950s, and the 21st century. Glencoe retains

much of its small-town feel as the Village evolves, while holding tightly

to its heritage.

Native American Potawatomies were here before white settlement;

they used the densely forested land for hunting. In 1835, Anson H.

Taylor, storekeeper and future stage coach inn owner, moved with

his family from Chicago to begin new lives. He named the area after

himself, Taylorsport. It was an agricultural hamlet with a lake pier and

farms plowed by English and German immigrants who joined the

Taylors before the Civil War.

Glencoe evolved, change spurred on by the 1855 arrival of the

railroad. The station was located across from the house of Walter S.

Gurnee, president of the Chicago and Milwaukee Railroad (later the

Chicago and North Western

and now Metra and the Union Pacific). Gurnee was a real estate

speculator, as well as former mayor of Chicago. He located the depot

near his holdings after Anson Taylor rejected the idea of combining

railroad and stage coach stops. The town grew up around the train. It

is likely Gurnee also gave Glencoe its name, after his Scottish roots,

or perhaps he named the village after his father-in-law, Matthew Coe,

from whom he bought the stock farm and home. (Coe’s Glen).

In the late 1860s, a pediatrician idealist, Dr. Alexander Hammond,

came to town and bought Gurnee’s home. Dr. Hammond’s dream

was simple: he enlisted nine other men to join him in creating a

utopia. Each man agreed to

build a house for himself and to sell another to someone else. The

Glencoe Company agreed to keep a park at the lakefront in perpetuity

and to fund a church and a school. Unfortunately, the real estate

declines of the 1870s put most of the Glencoe Co., including Dr.

Hammond, out of business. But the village they founded, platted

and incorporated in 1869 was on its way.

With the railroad, Glencoe developed into a commuter community

for some and a summer vacation community for others. Although

there were many German farmers in Glencoe—the Diettrichs and

the Beinlichs —through the Second World War, the population

grew and changed, with the village becoming more suburban

than rural and new residents moving in from all over—African

Americans from the south and Canada, and white ethnic groups

coming from Chicago.

Glencoe’s downtown—or uptown as many of the older

residents call it—also changed. The village never has had a huge

commercial center, but it has always bustled. Originally, there

were blacksmith shops and feed stores. From 1902 to 1993, the

business district’s anchor was Henry C. Wienecke’s hardware

store. Other stores joined Wienecke’s (Win-eh-kees). There were

many grocery stores, barber shops and soda fountains, which over

the years, changed to groups of cleaners, clothing boutiques and

banks. After the family sold the hardware store, the Wienecke’s

property changed into residential and assorted retail spaces.

The population increased steadily through 1960, requiring

growth in schools from a single all-village school, today’s Central,

to four schools: Central, South and North built in the 1920s and

West, added in the 1950s. The community built out, with the last

subdivision, Strawberry Hill on the west side of town, finished in the

1950s. But then the population declined, bringing the 1976 closure

of West School and then in 1979, North School, later reconfigured

into the Community Center, now the Takiff Center. In the early

1990s, the population pendulum swung upward once more,

necessitating the 1992 re-opening of West.

Glencoe’s downtown lost and gained new neighbors as the years

went by. The Glencoe Movie Theater, on Vernon Avenue, was

razed in 1979, as was its northern neighbor, the Masonic Temple.

Christophe’s, a five-and-dime store disappeared when the Harris

Bank built its drive-through lane in the late 1970s, and restaurants

have come and gone. The Writers’ Theatre developed in the

space behind Books on Vernon and today presents drama at the

Women’s Library Club.

Indeed, Glencoe has changed, but held tight to its heritage.

Founded in 1937, the Glencoe Historical Society has developed from

a small collection kept and maintained at the Glencoe Public Library to

today’s three-pronged campus: 375 Park Avenue with our interactive

Images of Glencoe exhibit; the Eklund History Center museum at 377

Park Ave. with its rotating exhibits, and the fabulous Eklund Garden

in bloom from spring to fall. Our full-service research center also is

located at 377 Park Avenue.

Through the years, the collection has expanded significantly as

residents donated artifacts: letters, pictures, newspapers, tools and

artifacts, including the sign from Glencoe’s first structure, the LaPier

Inn. The museum and research center, together with the Eklund

Garden, were generously donated by Sara C. “Sally” Eklund and

opened in 2001.

The award winning exhibit, Images of Glencoe, is a computerized,

digitized interactive exhibit about Glencoe. Using a touch-screen

computer terminal, visitors can identify any of 51 photos with a fingertip

and see in-depth information about the picture: who is in it, what is

the date, and what is the significance for Glencoe’s history.

The Museum and Research Center are visited by more than

2,000 persons annually, including those visiting the exhibits and

those looking for information about Glencoe residents (mostly for

genealogical purposes) or about their homes. The Research Center

holds, not only files on Glencoe history, but information on current and

former residents, real estate sales, newspapers, a large collection of

photographs from early Glencoe through today and the excellent Bea

and Barney Berlin Postcard Collection. The Museum also includes a

collection of books by Glencoe authors.

The museum is home to a number of textile collections: The Helen

Sharpe Collection from the wife of a former trustee who wore designer

and haute couture clothing from the 1920s to the 1980s; the Marianne

Crosby Collection, dresses and clothes from a former emeritus board

member; wedding dresses from the late 1880s through the 1930s;

Laura Ashley dresses from the 1950s through the 1970s, and

other, assorted clothing for men, women and children from

various periods. The clothes are used both for research and

exhibition purposes.

The Eklund Center is home, too, to the workbench, furniture and

tools of Carl Eklund, who ran a furniture building and upholstery

business in the 377 Park Avenue building from 1917 until his

death.

Currently on display at the Eklund Center is the media exhibit

“Stop the Presses.” The media tour explores the history of

newspapers, many from the archives of the historical society,

highlights with the Golden Age of Radio with excerpts from

famous radio broadcasts, and addresses the role of television,

with an opportunity to actually become a WGHS reporter.

Additionally, a large display features “Gasoline Alley,” the comic

strip created in 1918 by Glencoe resident Frank King for the

Chicago Tribune.

Later this year, Glencoe veterans of the Civil War will be part of a

new exhibit and lecture program in conjunction with the Glencoe

Library.

A series of events are held throughout the year. Watch for

announcements of talks at the Glencoe Public Library, the annual

The mission of the Glencoe Junior High Project (GJHP) is to

enrich the social and emotional development of all Glencoe middle

school students by providing opportunities for them to improve

the communities in which they live, create positive connections

with others, and develop into self-confident, socially conscious

individuals.

The GJHP provides young people with opportunities to participate

in social service activities that teach invaluable lessons of giving,

helping, and sharing with people less fortunate than themselves. It

engenders social responsibility and develops personal growth by

helping others in an atmosphere of involvement and trust.

Social Service opportunities include volunteering at Uptown Cafe:

a restaurant-style soup kitchen, playing with young people at PADS:

a family shelter, teaming up with an elementary school student at

Book Buddies: to develop stronger reading skills, and much more.

The GJHP offers social programs to aid the development of our

young people and their community by providing fun and safe

activities throughout the school year.

Social program include participating in Halloween Hoopla, our

annual Halloween party, watching a movie as a community during

Movie Night, playing Basketball with your friends at the Glencoe

Park District’s March Madness Tournament, and much more.

To compliment our social and service programming, and to tap

into the young people’s creativity, the GJHP also produces an

annual play. Any young person 6th-8th grade-aged can participate

as cast or crew.

In addition to all the programming above, the GJHP also staffs a

recreational center located in Central School, which provides

students with a relaxed atmosphere where students can express

themselves freely and interact socially.

The success of the Glencoe Junior High Project is a direct result of

the involvement of students, parents, volunteer board members, the

faculty of Central School, community members and staff.

Glencoe Youth Services (GYS) is celebrating it’s 40 th anniversary of

providing a safe, supportive environment for High School students.

Located in the Holmes Warming Shelter, immediately north of

Central School, GYS is open every day after school and on weekend

evenings. The youth center provides a welcoming atmosphere

where young people relax, talk with friends, and engage in their

choice of many recreational activities, such as pool, ping-pong,

movies, video games and cards. Three student computers with

high-speed internet access, are also available for homework and

games.

A diverse schedule of outside programs includes attending

Chicago Blackhawks and Bulls games, movie nights, concerts,

beach barbecues, pool tournaments, softball/kickball games,

educational speakers and social service projects. Several of our

most active participants volunteer on our youth board. Youth

board members develop leadership skills and learn to work as

a committee, as they hold monthly meetings, manage a budget,

conduct fundraisers, interview prospective employees and respond

to needs in the community. GYS is active at the 4 th of July Festival,

“Pumpkin Day” and The Just Say No to Drugs Parade. Our students

have also volunteered with The Volunteer Center of New Trier

Whether you seek recreation or relaxation, a place to go with friends

or a place to make friends, there is one thing for certain, you are

always welcome at GYS.

of directors, please call 847 835-3121.
