You are part of the Glenview area’s history…show you care! Please make a modest commitment to help maintain the only library and museum of general historic significance in and around Glenview.
The house and grounds were donated…the intial restoration and furnishings were completed long ago…the coach house library is built and paid for.

So, why are we asking you to join the Society? We need your help to provide programs of historical and educational interest…building and grounds maintenance…operation of the library…and additional historical artifacts — it’s as simple as that.

The generosity of the Glenview Days Association, the business community and civic-minded citizens have combined to bring the Glenview History Center, its museum and its library to a professional level. The Glenview History Center at 1121 Waukegan Road in Glenview offers something for everyone — the young and the old — the antique “buff” and the serious antiquities scholar — and all in warm and friendly surroundings.
