Help Preserve Highland Park's History

HPALHC Full Color LogoDo you have letters, photographs, memoirs, business cards, or other memorabilia that tell a story about Highland Park? Consider donating them to the Highland Park Archives and Local History Collections (HPALHC), a collaborative effort of the Highland Park Public Library, the City of Highland Park, and the Highland Park Historical Society.

The HPALHC documents the distinct, diverse community of Highland Park and its inhabitants through government records, organizational records, family interviews, papers, correspondence and images, photography collections, maps and much more in both digital and physical formats. Recent history is important, as well as items from long ago. This valuable community resource is available via the Highland Park Public Library's website at

Whether for research or for exploration and discovery, HPALHC ensures that the history of Highland Park is available and accessible. To preserve this history and enhance the collection, HPALHC welcomes contributions of historical documents and/or artifacts.

If you have items you think would fit this collection, please contact Nancy Webster, archivist, at the Highland Park Public Library at 847.432.0216 ext. 128 or Donations that are accepted are tax-deductible.
