West Rockhill Historical Society

 
Highland Park Camp Meeting is the first property in West Rockhill  to be placed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
Highland Park was eligible for the National Register for its important local example of the camp meeting movement and is a good example of the typical design and building types associated with camp meetings in the late 19th century.
It also has remarkably retained many of the characteristics of its early construction.
To be listed on the National Register is an honor and a tribute to those who have lovingly maintained Highland Park for nearly 125 years.
