Understanding Glenview: A History

Glenview is a suburban village that is easy to love. Featuring excellent schools, quiet neighborhoods, and one of the top shopping and dining areas in Chicagoland (“The Glen Town Center”), the area has become increasingly popular in recent years!

Mostly farmland until 50 years ago, Glenview has gone through a startling transformation in the last 20 years. The biggest change was the construction of The Glen Town Center. Once the Glenview Naval Air Station, “The Glen” is now an attraction across the north suburbs for its movie theaters, big-name retailers, and restaurants. That’s not all there is to this charming village, however. With some of the best schools in Illinois, a beautiful parks system, and lovely homes, Glenview is the full package.

Just 16 miles from downtown Chicago, you can get to the city easily with Edens Expressway (I-94) and the two Metra stations in the community. With easy access to work and the excitement of Chicago and the comfort of suburban living, Glenview has you covered!
