The Historical Committee was formed to oversee the restoration of the Glendale Heights Historic House to preserve an important piece of history. The plans for the house include restoring and furnishing the home to the early 1900's to become a place that reflects the "way thing were" 100 years ago.
The Glendale Heights Historic House was donated to the Village in memory of Harold A. Reskin, the founding father and the first developer of the Village. Space in the Historic House will be devoted to exhibit artifacts and pictures of the rich history of the Village, its growth and development. The Village hopes to create a place that educates and entertains residents about the Village's "proud and progressive" past and future.
The Village hosts periodic fundraisers for the restoration of the Historic House.
The Committee is looking for donations and artifacts to furnish the Historic House and memorabilia from years past to exhibit as part of our efforts to preserve Glendale Heights history.
Glendale Heights Historical Committee meets on the 1st Monday of the month at the Historic House, 311 Windy Point (corner of Windy Point and Paul). Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m.
