Residents' Thoughts

In your opinion, where is the most beautiful spot in Old Highland?

For me, our tulip garden (1527 Fremont) in the spring and our neighborhood gardens.

If you could tell someone moving here one thing about this community, what would you tell them?

Why do you think this is a good place for young people?

It's still a neighborhood, but a DIVERSE neighborhood which is "learning how to interact" with the global community.
