Highland Park Neighborhood National Register Historic Districts

The Highland Park Neighborhood (HPN) has two unique historic districts within its boundaries, Gregory Tract Historic District and Ellwanger Barry-Highland Park Neighborhood Historic District. A portion of HPN, south of Highland Hospital, is part of the Mt. Hope-Highland Historic District. All three districts have been approved by the State of NY and Gregory Tract and Mt. Hope-Highland have been added to the National Register. Ellwanger Barry-Highland Park Historic District is awaiting inclusion to the National Register in 2024.

Homeowners within all three historic districts can now take advantage of the New York State Historic Homeowners Tax Credit program. This program helps defray the costs of regular home repairs and upgrades. It provides a credit off your NYS income tax worth 20% of qualifying costs. Qualifying costs include but are not limited to: interior and exterior paint, porch repair, roofs, electric, HVAC, floor refinishing, new kitchens and baths, exterior carpentry, etc.
