The Historical Committee was formed in 2000 for the purpose of documenting the history of the Village and restoring the Glendale Heights Historic House. The members volunteer their time to conduct tours of the Historic House, as well as plan special events that are held in the house each year. The Historic House has been restored and furnished to the way it was in the early 1900's to be 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 was devoted to exhibit artifacts and pictures of the rich history of the Village, its growth and development. The Village created a place that educates and entertains residents about the Village's "proud and progressive" past and future.
The Committee is always 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.
