Highland Park’s 150th in 2019: Getting into Gear

Archivist Nancy Webster and HP-150 Archives, History and Lakefront Chair Catherine Lambrecht will offer ideas how Highland Park residents can make a contribution. It can be as personal as an oral history, loan or donation of an object or document. More than trinkets or pretty objets d´art, artifacts can illustrate an era, movements and innovation as lives change in the home, the community, the work place, and en route.  We want to gather papers and objects illustrating a keystone event or element that built the Highland Park Community of the 21st century.
