Inscription.  In the spirit of a handful of pioneers, Grace Highfield was an important part of the development of this Historic District. Grace loved German Village. Grace's openness to new ideas and to people of all ages was an inspiration. Her leadership and vision, coupled with her contributions of wisdom, time, and friendship are memorialized here. The strength and agelessness symbolized by the Umbrella Girl reflect the Grace we knew and loved. We invite you to enjoy the beauty and solace of this special place.
