Glencoe's Architecture

Glencoe is a small, historic Village that was developed as a planned community around a central downtown. Outside of downtown the Village is primarily residential, its neighborhoods dotted with parks, schools, and houses of worship. The Village is nestled within a greenbelt; three of its four borders are surrounded by natural and recreational open space.

The tree-lined residential streets include a broad variety of architectural styles dating from the Village’s incorporation in 1869 to present day. Many of the homes were designed by noteworthy architects including Frank Lloyd Wright, Howard Van Doren Shaw, Robert Seyfarth, Keck & Keck, and many others. 

Additional information will be added here soon regarding the Village's development, distinct neighborhood areas, architectural styles, and architects that designed buildings here. In the meantime, please visit the Historic Glencoe Story-Map.
