A LOOK BACK

SCHOON'S SUPER MARKET

 

Schoon’s Super Market is a popular fixture in town. The building is later incorporated into the expanding Highland department Store.

PRESERVING OUR PAST

 

Members of the Highland Historical Society consider it a labor of love to chronicle the town’s history – from the mid 1800’s to present day.

 

Led by Sue Douthett, the group works tirelessly to preserve Highland’s past for all us.

 

Members also volunteer to staff the Town Museum, which is located inside Lincoln Community Center. A treasure trove of artifacts and information, the museum is open from 10 a.m. to noon  Saturdays and by appointment.
