Our Community: 
Highway Park is a historic, predominantly African-American, "unincorporated" community about 1.2 miles south of the town of Lake Placid.   
Almost a century ago,  our ancestors created a community from unwanted land (a sandpit, swamp, and graveyard). No one knows if the graves were an old slave burial site, Native American burial ground, or an old homestead burial place. That story is lost in the sands of time.  The area has been called by  Hilton Heights, Taylor Subdivision, East Highway Park, Harry Taylor Highway Park Tract, McGahee Addition, Sweetwater Estates Division of Twin Lakes Grove, etc.).  We know it as Highway Park!!
