The Glencoe suburb is located on suburban Chicago's North Shore, and has grown into a thriving North Shore community after humble beginnings as a lumber industry hub and rest stop for travelers, then named Taylorsport. The area transformed in the mid-1800s after the first commuter railroad opened between Chicago and Waukegan, and was renamed after either early area landowner Matthew Coe or after the Glencoe region of Scotland. The Glencoe suburb was incorporated in 1869 after ambitious development and investment led to the construction of several residences, as well as schools, stores, and other scattered buildings connected by dirt roads. Progress on the fledgling Glencoe suburb stalled due to the Panic of 1873, but the community began to grow steadily through the latter decades of the century. It stabilized between 6,000 and 7,000 residents until the post-war baby boom caused a significant population spike. Today, Glencoe is known as a quaint community removed from the hustle and bustle of the big city, as well as for its abundant parks, superb schools—including nationally acclaimed New Trier High School—convenient beach facilities, and one of the most attractive business districts along the North Shore.
