Historic Walking Tours
Highland Park’s Historic Preservation Commission has worked together to create a walking tour of significant homes in the City’s Laurel / Prospect Historic District. The tour is a loop that starts at the Highland Park Library, travels east along Laurel Avenue, south along Lake Avenue, then back to the Library along Prospect Avenue. 35 structures are featured in the tour and an informative brochure details the route and offers photographs and interesting facts for each stop on the tour.
Audio Tour Guide
Twelve structures on the tour feature an audio description that can be downloaded to an MP3 player or listened to over a mobile phone when a special number is dialed. The detailed descriptions offer a glimpse into the history behind the properties and are read by local voice actors.
Please utilize the Walking Tour Brochure
during the walking tours. For additional information, please contact Andy Cross at (847) 926-1856.
