Welcome to Highland, a family-friendly community with 23,127 of the nicest folks you want to meet! Our residents are passionate about the arts, youth sports and festivals that bring us together throughout the year for fireworks, theater in the park and a plethora of ethnic foods that grew out of our history as a farming community and melting pot.


Blessed with arterial roads that connect easily to interstate highways, Highland combines the best of small-town living with the economic engine that is metropolitan Chicago.


Even as an established community, Highland is looking forward to continued growth in 2017 to build on our robust local economy. We have investors looking at Highland as an ideal location. As president of the Town Council, I am invested in this town and look continually at how we can continue to make it better.


If you have an hour or two and would like to see some of what makes Highland so special, I can offer a few suggestions. Walk the Little Calumet River path that encircles our Heron Rookery or bike the paved path that bisects our town from north to south and east to west. Head over to Lincoln Community Center, a hive of activities and classes.


Hungry? Check out any one of a dozen downtown eateries.


Thirsty? We have coffee houses and local craft brewers downtown and some of the best milkshakes in the region.


We are blessed to be a community of readers. In addition to our busy library, we have three bookstores within our borders.


There’s more to Highland than meets the eye. Spend some time and find out for yourself...
