Glenview History

The area now known as Glenview was originally inhabited by the Winnebago and Potawatomi Native Americans. Glenview was first settled in by Europeans after the signing of the Treaty of Chicago in 1833. George Heslington and his family were one of the early settlers of the area. At that time, it was known as South Northfield. Fred Hutchings renamed it Oak Glen in 1878. The name was finally changed to Glenview because there was another railroad stop called Oak Glen. Glenview was incorporated as a village in 1899. The Glenview Naval Air Station was one of the major carrier pilot training sites during the Second World War.
