Highland Park has a lot of history to celebrate this year — 150 years of it, to be specific.

The City is celebrating its sesquicentennial this year, or 150th anniversary, after being founded in 1869, and the event-filled year kicked off Jan. 9 at the unveiling of the HP150 Exhibition, displayed on the Ruth Fell Wander Community Art Wall in the First Bank of Highland Park.
