Highland to open new history museum

By Linda Petersen
Highland City will celebrate the opening of the Highland Historical Museum along with the yearly opening of the DUP Cabin on Saturday, June 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Highland Community Center, 5378 W. 10400 North, and across the street at the cabin.
The Highland Historical Society will have a special program upstairs in the community center at 11 a.m. with remarks from Mayor Mark Thompson, a historical presentation by Historical Society President Charlie Greenwood, remarks from an older Highland resident and a musical number.
The museum is currently being housed in a room on the lower level of the community center. Historical society members have gathered a variety of household items and some tools from the early 1900s that were owned by Highland residents and which the public is invited to view. They hope to add to their collection and are looking for donations of household or garden items. Since the space is limited, they cannot accept large items. The museum is looking for monetary donations (which would be tax deductible.) They're also looking for written histories of local residents.
With Thompson's help, historical society members are currently working on a comprehensive history of the city along with a website.
