High Ridges… Lakes… and The Scenic Delaware River! Highland is the year around home to a growing population of bald eagles. Its principal hamlets include Eldred, Yulan, Barryville, Minisink Ford and Highland Lake.
Highland was formed from Lumberland on December 17, 1853, the same date the town of Tusten was formed, making them the 13th and 14th Sullivan County towns. It is in the southwest portion of the county and its southern border is the Delaware River. The Revolutionary War Battle of Minisink, at which a group of Indians and Tories under the command of Colonel Joseph Brant routed a samll contingent of Colonial militia, took place within the town’s borders on July 22, 1779.
The Delaware & Hudson Canal, opened in 1828, entered New York State in the town of Highland, and the canal’s Delaware Aqueduct, designed and built by John A. Roebling in 1848, has been completely restored by the National Park Service as a historic landmark. It is used today as a motor vechicle bridge, and is known as the Roebling Bridge, the oldest wire rope suspension bridge in the world.
