A Pictorial History of Highland, by Bill Calvert


Bill Calvert has been collecting Highland photos and artifacts for 25 years. An idea began to take shape to chronicle the history of Highland from its early days, when it was known as Messina, to 1987 when Highland was incorporated as a city, through the use of photographs.

The late Kay Beattie, who wrote the Looking Back articles for the Highland Community News, was to collaborate with Bill on this project, but it became too much for her. With her encouragement, Bill pressed on with the project.

The Historical Society offered to “self-publish” this one-of-a-kind book consisting of 207 pages of photos and historical narrative.

Copies are available by contacting Nancy Alexander at 909-862-7868, or writing to the Highland Area Historical Society: P.O. Box 353, Highland, CA 92346-0353.
