Highland Park


Highland Park was established as a city on March 11, 1869, with a population of 500, and evolved from the two settlements of St. John and Port Clinton; St. John's Avenue and Port Clinton Square are named after the settlements. Highland Park's bluffs, lake vistas, ravines, and accessibility to Chicago support the foresight of nineteenth century developers who envisioned this picturesque suburb as a retreat for Chicago's affluent professionals.
