Did you know that there’s a house in Glencoe designed by the architect of the Chicago Water Tower? Or that our train station’s architect also designed Navy Pier? Learn about many such surprising connections between structures in Glencoe and outstanding architecture in Chicago and around the country. Laurie Petersen, a Winnetka-based architectural historian, will give a slide presentation that sheds new light on familiar buildings.
