The Glencoe Ten: A Fresh Look

On February 18, 1868, ten men entered into an investment agreement that ultimately created the Village of Glencoe. Who were these men? Where did they live? What did they bring to the community? Our Glencoe Ten: A Fresh Look at the Founders of Our Community program, which takes place on Sunday, March 23 at 2:00, will introduce you to the group that took a chance on some undeveloped land north of Chicago near the lake. After 145 years, we know the investment was successful for us - but was it successful for them? Every Glencoe resident should know this story, which will be presented by members of the Glencoe Historical Society.
