Why Preserve Highland Park,
the Home Beautiful?

Hamilton, Ohio in general, and Highland Park in particular, often take for granted the quality of life residents enjoy here. Truthsream Media examines the American Dream of home ownership, the importance of beautiful environments, and freedom of movement. You’ll come away feeling glad to call Highland Park home.

A Home to Grow

New family, new plantings, new flag, and a new lease on life! Style makes a comeback at this Highland Park classic as new owners toss the modern vinyl siding, and repaint the original shingles. It’s a pleasure to see this Highland Park home grow.

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. Autumn 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.

“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.
