The sport thrives in this community behind the promotion of the Highland Park and Arroyo Seco Bowling Clubs.

Civil War medic recommended Highlands for health By the late O. W. E. Griffith (Written in July, 1930) When I first visited Los Angeles in 1893 I met a physician who was a leading member of his profession and had served three years as surgeon in the Civil War. I knew him intimately in New Jersey. He told me he had removed to Southern Califor- nia for the health of his wife and family, and that from his careful investigation he had decided that Southern California was one of the most healthful parts of the world. He explained to me thtot he and other medical men, after careful and scientific investigation, had decided that 500 feet above the ocean might be regarded and accepted as one of the most healthful locations in the world! IMPROVES HEALTH So I bought an 11-acre tract in Highland Park and decided that X would make it my home as soon as I could. When I came back in 1900, and began to improve my tract before I got it all fully surveyed, a lady called to see me and asked me the pr...

14fh Council District In 38 years, only two councilmen [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
14fh Council District In 38 years, only two councilmen BY KOGEB SWANSON If any term can be rightfully applied to the 14th City Council District, of which Highland Park is a part, it is longevity. The grand total of two men have represented the district as councilmen during the past 32 years and one of them— John Holland —has served 20 years in nine consecutive terms and is still going strong. The 14th District was born in the Roaring 20s, a child of Los Angeles’ brand new city charter in 1925 which deemed it necessary to increase the number of wards to 15. The job of fixing boundaries for the new 14th Ward was given to a committee headed by Councilman Edwin Baker of Eagle Rock, who was to covet and seek the new prize as it would encompass his community. It was announced Jan. 13, 1925 that the 14th would comprise Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Garvanza, Glassell Park, Hermon, Annandale, San Pasqual and the York Blvd. districts. It was an election year and Baker announced he would campaig...

HP ALL WET Community once was a lake By Flint Walton (Reprinted from Dec. 4, 1939 News-Herald Hundreds of years ago thousands, perhaps Highland Park was entirely covered by water. Valleys were lake floors and hills were islands or peninsulas jutting above the surface of these lakes. Or it may be that the Pacific Ocean, in days long gone, extended back this far and the hills and valleys of the highlands were completely submerged. FIND PROOF Workmen excavating for the foundation of the three-story annex to be erected by the Highland Park Christian Church at Ave. 58 and Monte Vista St. last week came upon indisputable proof that at one time all this district lay under water. Going down to a depth of five feet through tine dark loam, the excavators struck a deep bed of sand, decomposed granite and large boulders rounded and made smooth by the constant wash of water over their surfaces. This ancient water bed extended all along the bottom of the excavation, varying in elevation from four...
