Early Ads and Praise for Highland Park

Imagine that it’s 1920. You’re a young, professional man from a good family. You’ve survived the Great War. Soon, you’ll marry your high school sweetheart and start a busy life of parenting, civic obligations, and card parties. It’s time to trade-in your Jordon Playboy roadster. You pick up the paper. Before you get to the cars, you see an advertisement for a new subdivision. Your credit is good, and chances are that your future father-in-law will buy the lot. Your fiancee’s best friend’s cousin keeps the books for a local architect. Convinced, you pick up the phone and dial 1660. You want a beautiful home in Highland Park.
