Winnetka Story

"Winnetka Story" is a feature length documentary about the history of Winnetka and the North Shore. The film is divided into three parts, each covering a different era in Winnetka's history. Each scene is a self-contained story that can be viewed separately. The DVD also includes nearly two hours of Special Features and rare footage.

Winnetka native, John Newcombe, is an award-winning filmmaker who lives and works in Los Angeles. His documentary, Rancho La Canada, was given the prestigious LA County Commendation Award. The success of Rancho La Canada was the inspiration for "Winnetka Story". John is also an accomplished cartoonist.
