The story of Highland Park begins long before the New Jersey town's founding in 1905, with the Lenape hunting these high woodlands along the banks of the Raritan River thousands of years before the arrival of George Drake -- brother of Sir Francis Drake -- in the seventeenth century.
From British encampments during the Revolution to a 1903 convention of hoboes, through the business and politics of the present, Highland Park's history is full of life and drama.
