Welcome to our Architectural History

In the 1920's, this Glenview area was advertised as an "elite playground" offering a private airfield, country clubs and plans for a polo field. This neighborhood was then a destination for the nearby Inn, which attracted day travelers to this "scenic location on the wooded banks of the river." At this earlier period, this neighborhood was known as the "Borders" because it was adjacent to the North Shore Country Club.

This pilot project website is intended to illustrate and compile the architectural history of our unique neighborhood -- with the view to conserve its character and enhance The CIRCLES.
