Welcome to the “Finest and Healthiest Part of the City“!
That is what the Ellwanger & Barry Company called our area while building many of our homes and streets.
Mr. Ellwanger and Mr. Barry were nurserymen who owned the land that consists of current-day Highland Park and our streets. This area was for many years known as The Ellwanger & Barry Neighborhood. Our name was changed to The Highland Park Neighborhood in 2007. The Highland Park neighborhood has always been known as very family friendly.
