Old Highland creates neighborhood narrative

Old Highland creates neighborhood narrativeOld Highland, one of the first platted neighborhoods of Minneapolis, has taken on the challenge of telling its unique and diverse community story by narrating its development and evolution through time. The Old Highland Neighborhood Association has contracted with Tammy Lindberg to work with residents to collect neighborhood history and to document contributing properties. The ultimate goal is to use the social history and architectural documentation to update and expand the existing self-guided Walking Tour Guide of significant properties in the Old Highland neighborhood.

The updated Walking Tour Guide will be a great promotional tool for Old Highland. It will be used to 1) increase public awareness of the historic and architectural quality of the homes in Old Highland; 2) encourage and support neighborhood interest and efforts in maintaining, enhancing and restoring the architectural integrity of individual homes and streetscapes, and 3) promote and market the neighborhood to potential new home owners who value and appreciate great housing and the strong sense of community among people who live here.
