Highland Park Real Estate & Information

Highland Park Real Estate & Information

Along with the appearance of streetcars in Montgomery came its earliest neighborhoods. Though most of Montgomery's homes were centered around the downtown area, Montgomery's street railway made it possible for people to live out from the city. Highland Park was the city's first "streetcar suburb," with tracks going down a median on Highland Avenue.

The city annexed the area in 1899 and the trolley ran until 1936. The area is bound by Mt. Meigs Road, Ann Street, Oak Park/Jackson Hospital complex and Forest Avenue.

The architecture of Highland Park is comprised mainly of small Queen Anne homes and Craftsman Bungalows, which earned it the title "Bungalow City" from its abundance of "pattern book" bungalows. The area offers room to grow, with large and small lots, ample yards and creative landscaping.

Highland Park residents are largely comprised of second and third generation families in the area, who actively work to preserve their neighborhood. Each year, the Highland Park Assn. celebrates and welcomes new homeowners to the area. Art on the Avenue is an eagerly awaited annual event.

Though that early median is now occupied with grass and trees, the neighborhood still retains the family atmosphere of those early days.
