NORTHBROOK — In honor of the Illinois Bicentennial, the North Shore-Barrington Association of REALTORS is proud to support Northbrook Historical Society and the Hope Union Heritage Center at 1812 Chapel Court in Northbrook.
Located at the corner of Chapel and Church Streets in downtown Northbrook, the 123-year-old Hope Union Church was home to the Christian Science Society for nearly six decades, from the late 1950s through January 2018 when the Christian Science Society donated the structure to Northbrook Historical Society.
Now, with the church passing from one family to the next, NSBAR is honored to help facilitate a happy housewarming by supporting the Northbrook Historical Society’s continued efforts to refurbish the historically significant building.
“The North Shore-Barrington Association of Realtors has served the Northbrook community for nearly 100 years,” says NSBAR CEO Steve Volkodav. “Working with Northbrook Historical Society as we celebrate the Illinois Bicentennial is a perfect opportunity to not only honor our great state, but also the volunteers who built it.”
In recognition of the Northbrook Historical Society’s ongoing work to restore the church, a presentation ceremony was held on May 10 to officially dedicate the drinking water system donated by NSBAR to the new Hope Union Heritage Center. Together with the community, NSBAR celebrates Northbrook Historical Society, the Illinois Bicentennial and the spirit of philanthropy that makes Illinois—and the North Shore—a great place to call home.
