A Legacy To Wright, Jensen and Booth
One of the highlights of the Ravine Bluffs Centennial Celebration is a plan to re-build the Wright-designed Station, originally located just north of Maple Hill Road, which once served the North Shore Electric Line. The Green Bay Trail has replaced the rail bed and the reconstructed station would be an invaluable rest stop and educational resource for our village.
Immediately to the East of the rebuilt station are the remnants of a park, planned by Jensen, which would be combined with the Station and rebuilt in the style and spirit of this beloved American conservationist.
Together, the Station and the Park will create an educational and recreational jewel for our village, commemorating the centennial of an historic community treasure and providing a living tribute to the work of Wright, Jensen and Sherman Booth, who was also one of the founders of the Glencoe Park District.
