The Park subdivision in Glenview

Survey map for the Park subdivision in Glenview: In the 1890s, a religious group called the Swedenborgian Church of New Jerusalem settled in Glenview, purchasing a 40-acre tract north of Glenview Road. The congregation built a church and a small pond on 10 acres with home sites for congregants, surrounding it in a circular plan designed by landscape architect Swain Nelson who helped design Chicago's Lincoln Park.  Since its development, the neighborhood has been known as the "Park."
