Sixth Annual Event CoSponsored by the Park District of Highland Park, the Public Library and the City of Highland Park

Highland Park, IL – The Highland Park Historical Society invites the community celebrate our pioneer history and step back in time on September 16, 2017 from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm for the Stupey Cabin’s 170th Anniversary.

This party will include live music, food, beer garden and tours of the Stupey Cabin. Children’s activities will include a petting zoo, pony rides, puppies at the PAWS adoption booth and storytelling. This event will take place at the Stupey Cabin, located between the Highland Park Library and City Hall on St. Johns Avenue, across from the Highland Park main train station.
The 1847 Stupey Cabin was built by the family of Prussian immigrant Frances Stupey and is the oldest standing structure in Highland Park. The cabin is owned and maintained by the Historical Society. It moved to its current site in 1968 when the Exmoor Country Club donated the cabin to the people of Highland Park. The cabin is in the process of significant preservation work to ensure the cabin’s existence for future generations.
According to Historical Society President, Rob Rotering, “The 170th Anniversary of Stupey Cabin is a celebration of our town’s pioneer roots, in partnership with the City of Highland Park, the Park District and the Library.” While all of the events are free of charge, food and beer is available for purchase and a donation to ‘Save the Stupey Cabin’ is kindly requested.
All events will take place in front of the Francis Stupey Cabin located in Laurel Park, on St. Johns Avenue between the Highland Park Library and City Hall.
Parking is available in the City Hall public parking lot and the city parking structure at St. Johns and Laurel Street. The Metra Union Pacific North stop is “Highland Park,” located across St. Johns Avenue from the event. No rain date is planned.
The Highland Park Historical Society’s mission is to preserve, teach and make accessible to the public, the history of Highland Park. For more information, you are invited to contact us at 847-432-7090
