The Highland Historic District boasts almost 100 acres of beautiful Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, and bungalow/craftsman homes, some built as early as 1875. The Highland neighborhood is also the host to what is arguably Shreveport’s most unique Mardi Gras parade. Hosted by, you guessed it, the Krewe of Highland, parade-goers are as likely to catch a hotdog or a package of Spam as they are beads and trinkets.
The original district is roughly bounded by Vine, Gilbert, and Topeka streets, and Irving Pl. in Shreveport. In 2001 the district was expanded and is now roughly bounded by Stoner, Centenary, Kings Hwy., and Line Ave.
