Highland Park History

Highland Park History

The Highland Park Cemetery Association was established in 1905. Designed by renowned landscape architect, Sidney Hare, Highland Park was the first cemetery in Wyandotte County to embrace the idea that a cemetery could be more than just a burial ground. With its rolling hills, shade trees, and park-like setting people came from miles to visit their loved ones and stroll through the Highland Park.
