Highland Park Library History

The Highland Park Library was originally known as the Ford Parkway branch of the Saint Paul Public Library. The Ford Parkway Branch Library opened on March 20, 1954. The cost for the building was $106,426. The building was 53' x 93'; its exterior was rose-colored brick. The branch held 15,000 volumes.

The building was redesigned in 1974, incorporating the existing building into a modern design concept. The current Highland Park library shares its facility with the Hillcrest Recreation Center.
