Winnetka is an affluent village located approximately 19 mi (30 km) north of downtown Chicago in Cook County, Illinois. It has a population of 12,419. Winnetka is located 198m (650ft) above sea level and has a magnetic declination of 3° 10' W. According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 3.9 square miles (10.2 km²), of which, 3.8 square miles (9.9 km²) of it is land and 0.1 square miles (0.2 km²) of it (2.30%) is water. Winnetka's streets are lined with multi million dollar homes and historic oaks. Sunday drives along Sheridan Road to view some of this country's most elegant real estate is a long-standing tradition for visitors and residents alike.

The first houses were built in 1836. That year Erastus Patterson and his family arrived from Vermont and opened a tavern to service passengers on the Green Bay Trail post road. The village was first subdivided in 1854 by Charles Peck and Walter S. Gurnee, President of Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad. Winnetka's first school opened in 1856. The town was incorporated in 1869 with a population of 450.

The name Winnetka is claimed to have been found in a book, meaning beautiful land in a local Native American language. However, no language has been found with a word anything resembling both Winnetka and the definition.

The oldest surviving house in Winnetka is the Schmidt-Burnham House. It was relocated in the 2003 from its original location on Tower Road to the Crow Island Woods. The Crow Island School, designed by Eero Saarinen, was declared a National Landmark in 1990. It was declared 12th among all buildings and the best architectural design of all schools. 10,000 people showed up for the opening in 1938.

The Winnetka Public Schools system (District 36) consists of three elementary schools and two middle schools.[5] Hubbard Woods, Crow Island, and Samuel Sewall Greeley Elementary Schools serve grades kindergarten through four. Students in fifth and sixth grades attend The Skokie School. Seventh and eighth graders attend Washburne School, named after educator Carleton Washburne. Winnetka's schools were modeled after Washburne's educational philosophy in an experiment called the Winnetka Plan. The town's schools continue to reflect his educational philosophy. Winnetka is in New Trier Township, and public school students who reside in Winnetka attend New Trier High School for grades 9 through 12.
