Highland Park was platted in 1891 in what was known as Reynold’s meadows. It was Lafayette’s first planned subdivision, with winding brick streets and avenues and a park known as the Highland Park Triangle, used for picnics and gatherings, but mainly used by youngsters for neighborhood baseball and football games. Architectural styles range from large, turn-of-the-century Queen Anne houses to middle-class bungalows. A few houses were built after World War II in the ranch house style. All buildings but one are residential (Highland School) and all but very few are single-family dwellings. Wood frame construction is predominant; however, brick, stucco, and a variety of other materials are present.This event is graciously sponsored by the National Group.
