Highland Park, Hamilton, Ohio

Your Home, Pretty as a Picture

The David Silver residence of Highland Park.
Built in 1926 for David Silver of Lowenstein Furniture, 1300 Cereal Avenue is an exemplary Highland Park home. The Silver home was designed by Hamilton architects Mueller & Hair and built by William Conradt & Son.

Whether you’re looking for a new home, or you’ve lived in Highland Park your entire life, it pays to pause and to look at this beloved neighborhood. The houses here age companionably. Daffodils and tulips bloom in spring. Lawns grow lush and green in summer. Maple, oak and sweet gum leaves turn brilliant shades of red and gold. In winter, snow frosts Christmas wreaths hanging on doors and windows. All the while, our families go about the business of walking their dogs, raising children, and watching out for each other. See hundreds of Dave Duricy’s neighborhood photos in HomeBeautiful’s Highland Park Photo Galleries. If you already live in Highland Park, you’ll appreciate what you have here. If you’re looking to relocated to Hamilton, Ohio, you’ll appreciated what you could have if you lived in Highland Park.

“Welcome Home!” to the next 100 years.

A century ago, the developers of Highland Park platted our neighborhood above the smoke and soot of the city. They set aside green space, and saved the oldest trees. The first property owners in Highland Park built “castles of [their] dreams”, and those castles entwined with the good fortune of Hamilton as only gracious homes do. In 2019, Highland Park neighbors commemorated Highland Park’s 100 successful years. We remembered to take pride in our past, to encourage the appreciation and preservation of our historic houses, and to carry the ideals of Highland Park into the next 100 years.
