Give to the Max Day 2015

GTMD15LogoHorizontalColorSafePlease consider Old Highland when making your GTMD donations. The Old Highland Neighborhood Association is a 501(c)(3) and that makes your contributions to Old Highland eligible for charitable tax deductions. Virtually all of our funds cover expenses for 3 primary events: The annual spring clean-up at the end of April, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Home Tour on the last weekend in April, and Blooming Boulevards on Memorial Day weekend. Because we have no paid staff, virtually 100% of your contribution goes to program expenses.

Old Highland one of the “Best Old House Neighborhoods”

We’re proud to announce that Old Highland has been selected as one of 61 “Best Old House Neighborhoods” for 2012 by This Old House Magazine.

Cornerstones Extras Webisode

Old Highland and our own Angie Nelson were filmed for a short segment as a part of “Cornerstones: A History of North Minneapolis”, a documentary co-produced by the University of Minnesota Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center and Twin Cities Public Television (TPT). Unfortunately, Old Highland didn’t make the cut for the full documentary, but we were delighted to find that we were included in their “Cornerstones Extras” webisodes!
