Wilmette is considered a bedroom community in the North Shore region. In 2007, Wilmette was ranked as the seventh best place to raise children in the U.S., according to Business Week.
Wilmette is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan and is a near northern suburb of Chicago, immediately North of Evanston. The North Shore Channel drainage canal empties into Lake Michigan at Wilmette Harbor. According to the 2010 census, the village has a total area of 5.41 square miles, of which 5.40 square miles is land and 0.01 square miles is water. Wilmette has a well-developed urban forest and since 1983 has enjoyed “Tree City” status. As of 2006, village parkways hosted more than 18,600 trees comprising 150 species and sub-species.
Wilmette is home to the Bahai House of Worship, the continental Bahai House of Worship for North America and presently the only one in the United States, as well as the administrative offices for the Bahai National Spiritual Assembly. In 2007 the house of worship was named as one of the “Seven Wonders of Illinois” by the Illinois Bureau of Tourism. It is open seven days a week to anyone who wishes to visit. There is no charge and no collection is taken. Wilmette has a two-theater multiplex named the Wilmette Theater located on Central Avenue in one of its downtowns. This theater shows classic films, contemporary movies, as well as hosting live performances.
Other attractions include Gillson Park with beach access, marina, and an off-leash area for dogs; Langdon Beach; and Centennial Park, with a public swimming pool, tennis and ice-skating facilities. In 2013 the Wilmette Platform Tennis Club was developed, the new facility has 4 paddle tennis courts and a warming hut. Gillson Park hosts a wide variety of activities that the whole family can enjoy. The beach has been a local attraction for decades. Swimming in the beach is only allowed in specific areas of the water. The park also provides its visitors with a part of the beach called the Dog Beach. Here, visitors are allowed to bring their dogs for a fun day in the water. Depending on the weather conditions, the park’s beaches may be temporarily closed in order to maintain the safety of the park’s visitors.
In addition to the Bahai House of Worship, Wilmette is famous for several other examples of religious architecture. The oldest existing church building in Wilmette is the First Congregational Church (1909) designed in the Tudor Revival style. Trinity United Methodist Church (1928) is a Neo-Gothic structure and was designed and constructed by Granger & Bollenbacher of Wisconsin Lannonstone. The church features stained glass windows by Willet Studios of Philadelphia, among the top American studios during the 1920s. The church was used as a filming location for Home Alone.
