This photo, taken in 1895, depicts Highland Boulevard near Washington Park. This is an area that has now become rundown and is the target of a revitalization project. It shows the neighborhood as it was; fresh and welcoming. Families, such as the Pabsts, Millers, Pritzlaffs, and Usingers built mansions in this area around this time. Because the neighborhood was primarily German, it was given the nickname of Sauerkraut Boulevard.
