The Goldblatt / Wilmette connection is that earlier today the Goldblatt Estate came on the market. Even though I have lived here in Wilmette for nearly 20 years I did not know about this amazing place tucked in the village.
Let's explore this together. From the Encyclopedia of Chicago:
Louis Goldblatt's home is the one in the photos above that is for sale. It can be yours for $10.9M.
There is more to the story of the Goldblatt Family and Wilmette. Nathan Goldblatt (Louis' brother) also lived here. Nathan's home, 612 N Sheridan, was just a bit north of Louis's home. The prominent part of the story though is the previous owner of Nathan's home, Benjamin Marshall. More to come in my next post.....
