Experience the Rich History of Northbrook!

Each of the North Shore Chicago towns such as Waukegan, Northbrook, Highland Park, Glencoe and Deerfield are unique in their own way. If you are thinking of buying a home in a North Shore community, you’ll want to read about or experience each area to see which one has the atmosphere and lifestyle for which you’re looking! As they say, “location, location, location!” However, I truly feel that no matter which of the wonderful places you choose on Chicago’s North Shore; you can’t go wrong!

The town that I would like to feature this week is the quaint area of Northbrook. Spanning just thirteen miles, this community, which was settled in 1843 as the Village of Shermerville, was incorporated and renamed Northbrook in 1923. Walking through the downtown area and surrounding streets, you feel a rich sense of history and that Northbrook has something special to offer!

Of course what would a historic town be without a Historical Society? The Northfield Inn, built 1849 and home to the towns most delicious chicken dinners and lemon cream pies, was renovated into the Northbrook Historical Society and History Museum in 1975. As an active and vibrant society, this Northbrook favorite features events and special museum highlights throughout the year.

To really experience the history of Northbrook and to get to know the community better, the society is hosting The 32nd Annual Shermerfest which will be held this Sunday, September 19 from 12-4pm! This event will feature live music, food, a silent auction, a magic show for the children, prize drawings and much more! More information is available on the Northbrook Historical Society and History Museum’s website.

Whether Northbrook is where you are looking for a North Shore home, or if you would like to view any of the beautiful homes for sale in Chicago’s North shore; let me know! I enjoy showing people the various communities around the North Shore area and have years of experience in Chicago’s North Shore Real Estate market! I would be happy to set up a time to meet with you to discuss your needs and to show you around. I look forward to hearing from you!
