100th Anniversary Celebration of Ravine Bluffs Begins
To celebrate the centennial of Ravine Bluffs, the Glencoe Historical Society is partnering with the library and other community institutions for a year of special events. Opening the series on Sunday, September 28, at 5:00 p.m., will be Glencoe resident and noted architectural historian Gwen Summers-Yant, who will present a slide program on Frank Lloyd Wright in Glencoe. Held in the library’s Johnson Room, the lecture will trace the development of Ravine Bluffs, discuss its architectural distinctions, and explore some of the fascinating personal aspects of the Booth family (who founded the subdivision) and their relationship with Wright. Please note that the library will close at 4:00 and will reopen at 4:30 for seating. Please stay tuned for other Frank Lloyd Wright-related programs in the library and the village, including our Sunday, November 2nd program where an architectural historian will take an in-depth look at one of the Wright-designed Glencoe homes.
