Developed in the 1890s, the Highland Historic District is one of the oldest and most important residential neighborhoods in Shreveport.
It’s often referred to as the heart of Shreveport.
Built on “high land” south of downtown, the district contains a wide variety of architectural styles, from Colonial Revival mansions and Queen Anne cottages to Romanesque churches and one of the finest collections of Craftsman bungalows and foursquares in the state.
Today, Highland is home to an eclectic and vibrant group of residents who like to celebrate their beautiful neighborhood with events such as:
The modern boundaries of Highland are commonly considered to be Stoner Avenue to the north, Youree Drive to the east, Kings Highway to the south, and Southern Avenue to the west. Map of Historic Highland Area
Since 1977, the Highland Restoration Association (HRA) has focused on the revitalization and preservation of Shreveport’s historic Highland neighborhood.
We strive to promote the Highland neighborhood and build an active, caring community that also likes to have a good time!
