We love the brick-lined streets of the Cage area with the charming streetlights and historical mansions in Wilmette. It is reminiscent of the by-gone years. Some of these historical mansions were built by Daniel Burnham, Walter Burley, George Maher and Frank Lloyd Wright. It is a warm and friendly area oozing with charm and wonderful families.
