First settled in 1848, Highland Park began as a large portion of land along the Mississippi River, encompassed by the Fort Snelling reservation. In 1925, the Ford Motor Company opened an assembly plant, resulting in an influx of auto worker settlement. Soon after, the Intercity Bridge was built in 1927, carrying workers over the river. The Highland Water Tower was also constructed in 1927, still standing today as a landmark on the highest point of St. Paul.
With such close proximity to the city, the culture and arts of the metropolitan hub allow residents to enjoy the peace and quiet of suburban life within a short distance to downtown flair. The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, RiverCentre, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and Fitzgerald Theater, are just a few of the venues recognized for performing arts in St. Paul. Additional local attractions include Lake Como, the Como Zoo and Conservatory, Indian Mounds Park, Harriet Island Regional Park and the Wabasha Street Caves to name a few.
