Highland Home in Crenshaw County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Site of Highland Home College
From its inception, the school was coeducational. It brought culture to pioneer Alabama—music, foreign languages, science, literature and drama as well as “The Three R’s.” Although never a religious institution, Bible courses were offered. It’s graduates provided the state many distinguished citizens.
When the economics of competing with the state normal schools forced it to close its doors forever in 1915, it had served Alabama continuously for 59 years. The trustees deeded this property to the State of Alabama in 1916 for educational use.
Erected 1977 by the Barnes, Jordan, Kirkpatrick Memorial Association.
