On June 14, 1924, when this photo was taken, No Man's Land was mostly open space dissected by Sheridan Road with a sandy beach, a couple of buildings, and several billboards. Photo courtesy of Wilmette Historical Museum.

“No Man’s Land” is the 22-acre section of Wilmette that’s home to Plaza del Lago, the Sheridan Road condos and co-ops, and the Westerfield townhomes. It received this moniker a century ago because, until 1942, it wasn’t part of any municipality and was essentially ungoverned.
