March 11, 1969 -- Highland Park Celebrates One Hundred Years

March 11, 1969 -- Close to 700 people, including the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Chicago, John Cardinal Cody, come together at the Highland Park Country Club to celebrate the one-hundredth anniversary of the town's founding. Lieutenant General Vernon Mock, the Fifth Army Commander, is also a guest of honor. When the members of the Stupey family arrived from Germany and in 1847 built the log cabin pictured above, they could not have imagined the North Shore town of over 30,000 souls that exists today.
