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. In fact, in their honor, our neighborhood was for many years known as The Ellwanger & Barry Neighborhood.
In 2007, with permission of the City, we changed our name officially to The Highland Park Neighborhood. Today the Highland Park Neighborhood is known as a family friendly section of Rochester, NY.
Here are other things to know about us.
