Historic Old Highland identifies 67 significant properties

Historic Old Highland identifies 67 significant properties“The Old Highland Project is a fantastic example of community members coming together to take stock in their shared past, dig deep to learn more about the distant past of the places where they live, and then tie it all together in a meaningful package that serves the future needs of their neighborhood.  They are a model of initiative, resourcefulness, and citizen-based preservation,” staid Jack Byers, Manager of Minneapolis Community Planning and Economic Development Department, Preservation and Design Section.

Historic Old Highland is a three-part project to update and expand the Old Highland Walking Tour. The Old Highland Neighborhood, just minutes northwest of downtown Minneapolis, is a portion of the original northern section of the Fort Snelling Military Reservation, which was claimed for the United States in 1809 by Lt. Zebulon Pike.  Today Old Highland is a charismatic and progressive neighborhood in transition, home to a growing population of middle-class professionals who have discovered and rehabilitated the area's century-old Victorians and working-class bungalows. Within the neighborhood there are many rich layers of history and a strong sense of community.
