Gillson Park considered for listing in National Register of Historic Places!
On October 27, the Illinois Historic Sites Advisory Council voted to recommend the nomination for Gillson Park and Wilmette Harbor for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The next step is for the State Historic Preservation Office to forward the nomination to the Keeper of the National Register in Washington. The Keeper will make a final determination within 45 days.
Landmarks Illinois has been instrumental in this process. On November 2, they presented a virtual lecture about the history of our treasured Gillson Park, and the Wilmette Harbor. To view this fascinating presentation, click on the button below:
