See a Historic Mansion this March
The Highlands is a bustling community today, full of theaters and nightlife and good food. But once, this was a wild forest full of hills. It was here that a grand mansion was built, Walnut Grove, a home that's still standing to this day.
Walnut Grove, also known as the Bonnycastle mansion, is a highlight of the Bonnycastle neighborhood today. It was built in the 1860s and it's been standing in the same place ever since. The rest of the neighborhood and the Highlands was built around this lovely place, a reminder of the city's early beginnings.
The mansion wasn't a very practical private home and in the early 1900s, it became a school for local children. In the 1940s, the building was modified when it became a house of worship.
Today, new mansions and large, grand homes fill up the acreage that was once all farmland and trees. Bonnycastle has become a beautiful part of the large Highlands community, a pretty place that you may soon want to call home, too. You’ll find many beautiful homes right next to historic Bonnycastle in beautiful Cherokee Triangle.
