GCC_About-HistoryOriginally the Glencoe Grade and High School building and later known as the Glencoe Middle School, the Glencoe City Center began its transformation in 2009.

After numerous years of planning to save the historic school building, the City opened the re-purposed Glencoe City Center.

Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the Glencoe City Center continues to be a gathering space for the community.


On any given week, the Glencoe City Center is filled with a variety of activities. Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, local youth dance clubs, and senior citizen groups are just a few of the groups that are meeting at the facility on a regular basis.

The building includes a state of the art event and meeting facility. Events held at the Glencoe City Center include wedding ceremonies and receptions, concerts, graduations, reunions, confirmations, anniversaries, bridal and baby showers, birthday parties, business meetings, and other community happenings.

The City of Glencoe is proud that the Glencoe City Center will be a gathering spot for generations to come.
