Highland Park Print
Naturally bordered by the scenic and winding Mississippi River, Highland Park is centrally located in the Twin Cities and yet boasts it’s own small-town feel. The Village, a shopping district with plenty of restaurants, boutiques, and beautiful public gardens, is in the heart of the Highland Park neighborhood. Families thrive on the recreational opportunities with miles of park land, golf, little league, a movie theater and a newly renovated park pavilion. Walking quaint, tree lined streets to kindergarten or graduate school, the public library or church, or to The Village for its annual 3 day festival, Highlandfest, there's something for everyone to enjoy in Highland Park.

When settlers first came to Fort Snelling in the 1830s, Highland Park was the land on which they stayed. It remained farm country until the arrival of the Ford Plant in 1924 and the first major development of the Highland Manor and the Highland Village apartments were opened in October of 1939 at the intersection of Cleveland and Ford Parkway. By 1951, the Village shopping area had burned twice but had been redeveloped with Highland Park State Bank, Powers Dept Store, the Highland Theatre, and an Applebaums grocery store. With the growth of the business community came the housing boom for most of Highland Park.

Housing Styles and Types

Highland Park consists mostly of single-family houses dating from the 1920s and 30s in many period-revival styles as well as many homes from the 1950s and later in ranch, split-level, and rambler styles. Apartments and condominiums are primarily located in the West 7th Street-Shepard Road area.
