Glencoe, one of the smaller villages comprising New Trier Township, with a population of approximately 8,762. Located 22 miles north of the Loop, the village began as an experiment in building the “perfect suburb”. Alexander Hammond, a retired physician and farmer from Rockford, led the quest to create a village with parks, homes and streets following the natural and beautiful topography of the land. Residents would agree that the experiment was an unmitigated success.

The principals that shaped Glencoe are still evident. Strict zoning helps to maintain the spaciousness of the community, which reminds one more of a forest preserve than a suburb of a major metropolitan area. The central business district of the village is dotted with small boutiques, cafes and a variety of professional services. It is shielded from the many trappings of urban life (expressways for example) by the forest preserves, the Chicago Botanical Gardens and dense growth of trees. Outdoor activities are popular in the community, which boasts a nicely maintained beach, boating slips at the Wilmette Harbor and two nature sanctuaries. The district operates 18 parks, two outdoor ice rinks, two community centers, tennis courts, three golf courses and bicycle/jogging paths.

Housing: The Village has a mix of housing styles that include traditional two stories, Tudors, Colonials and Georgians. Home prices range from 300”s up to 3+Million as they become closer to the Lake. 

Schools: Glencoe District 35 is unique in that it offers an age based school system, so that the entire student body matriculate by grade, through the same schools beginning with the South campus which houses grades K-2, West for 3rd & 4th , and Central for grades 5th through 8th. The district is known for its language and fine arts programs, as well as the student published magazine. Glencoe is a feeder district for New Trier High School, 9th graders first attend New Trier’s west campus in Northfield and graduate on to the East campus for grades 10 through 12.

Transportation: Drivers have easy access to the Edens Expressway (I-90), and drive time is 30 minutes to the Loop. O’Hare Airport is 30 minutes away, while Midway is 50 minutes away. Metra trains reach the Loop in 29 minutes by express and 38 minute via local.
