Prohibition Glenview made many people rich, some angry, some sad, and some dead.

Today, Glenview is one of the safest places to live in Illinois, but during Prohibition, speakeasies, saloons, and ice cream parlors hijacked the small farming town. Good men and women, trying make a few bucks, opened scores of taprooms and lounges along Waukegan Road. Beloved institutions like Hackney's restaurants, Meier's Tavern, and Grandpa's Place were originally supplied by a bootlegging operation that was both local and friendly. Then the Chicago Outfit moved in. Author Jill Crane traces the path the resilient citizens of Glenview took in carving a thriving community out of the tumult of Prohibition.
