FOR SALE: Imperiled Buildings
615 Lincoln, Glencoe
In foreclosure, the Edward L. Glaser House, "Rosemor Lodge", is irreplaceable. It is in deteriorating condition but has excellent integrity. Because
of its need for much rehabilitation and its lack of protection, the
house is a prime candidate for demolition, with the land available for
redevelopment. The house, extensively remodeled by noted architect
Benjamin Marshall in 1916, is included in "North Shore Chicago, Houses
of the Lakefront Suburbs, 1890-1940 Stuart Cohen and Susan Benjamin,"
(Acanthus Press, 2004). It is also included in the timeline that is part
of the recently published book on Benjamin Marshall, "Benjamin
Marshall, Chicago Architect," (Acanthus Press, 2015).
