Highland Park’s history is a valuable community resource, and sharing your unique collections is vital to our efforts. Preserving and making available the history of Highland Park is the focus of the Highland Park Archives and Local History Collections (HPALHC), a collaboration between the Highland Park Public Library, the City of Highland Park, and the Highland Park Historical Society. The collaboration documents the distinct, diverse community of Highland Park and its inhabitants through government records, organizational records, family interviews, papers, correspondence and images, photography collections, maps, and much more in both digital and physical formats.

This valuable community resource is housed at the Library, and additional resources can be accessed via the Library’s website at hplibrary.org/archives-5304. Whether for research or for exploration and discovery, HPALHC ensures that the history of Highland Park is available and accessible. To preserve this history and enhance the collection, HPALHC welcomes contributions of historical documents and/or artifacts pertaining to Highland Park.

Together, let’s preserve Highland Park’s history.
