Highland Square, a location where the past collides with the present to form a vibrant and eclectic urban neighborhood, has something for everyone! History runs through the district on a street named Portage Path. This path was a stretch where Native Americans carried their canoes between the Cuyahoga and Tuscarawas Rivers. It was effectively the western boundary of the white and Native American lands from 1785 to 1805. The Native American refurbished statue which marks this important corner of Portage Path and West Market Street, is visible from the windows of Highland Towers.
In its present form the neighborhood is alive with restaurants, small town shops, convenient personal services and a movie theater - all in a walkable area. If there is anything else you need a short drive offers all that downtown Akron, Montrose and Fairlawn have to offer.
