Highland Park

Highland Park is located within an hour’s drive of both Philadelphia and New York City and sits on the northern bank of the Raritan River. It is the birthplace to many well-known scientists, authors, and academics as well as a few famous entertainers such as Fred Astaire and his sister Adele and Kirk Douglas and his son Michael Douglas.

The history and architecture of Highland Park is due in part to influential architect Alexander Merchant who designed over a dozen buildings in town. Another contributor is the Livingston Manor Corporation. They developed homes in the area of Grant Ave., Lawrence Ave., and North Second Ave. among many other historic homes which is now known as the Livingston Manor Historic District.
