835 Highland Avenue
Historically, few apartment buildings were erected in Highland Park. There are several “flat” buildings similar to 835 Highland in Lafayette but most are closer to downtown. Built in about 1915 with four large flats, this building has a slightly grander scale and feeling than most dwellings in Highland Park. Brick and stone trimmed exterior walls with side bay windows give an air of solidity but the full height wood portico imparts grandeur. Full size fluted Ionic columns uphold the full entablature. The frieze has a ribbon and garland motif. A one story, flat roofed portico projects forward off the main portico’s center bay. The shorter portico has un-fluted Doric columns and a classical balustrade.
