The annual Haven Hill Festival coming at the end of the month. Make sure to save the date Saturday, August 29, from 10 am until 3:00 pm to come to Highland State Recreation Area. Vintage base ball, Model A Ford car show, history of Haven Hill, and summer foods and beverage for everyone!
The 2012 Haven Hill Festival at Highland State Recreation Area will have something for everyone to enjoy, and a very special display for vintage car enthusiasts!
On Saturday, August 25, at Goose Meadow in the Highland State Recreation Area, the Livingston A’s (members of the Model A Restorers Club, MARC, www.modelaford.org) will bring a collection of their beautiful Model A Ford automobiles for display. The A’s have driven their fine Ford automobiles to the Haven Hill Festival every year since its inception in 2009 as dedicated supporters of the Friends of Highland Recreation Area.

The Livingston A’s own many absolutely gorgeous Model A Ford cars of all types and colors. Between 1928 and 1932 nearly 5 million of nine different body styles of Model A Fords were sold across America, 5 million! Prices ranged from $385 for a base model, to $1400 for the top-of-the-line “Town Car”. The design team for the Model A was led by Henry Ford’s son Edsel, who with his wife Eleanor and their children were the original residents of the beautiful Haven Hill Estate that is now the location of the Highland State Recreation Area and the Haven Hill Festival.
The Friends of Highland Recreation Area wish to thank the Livingston A’s for their dedication to the Haven Hill Festival and the sincere efforts of the Friends of Highland Recreation Area support group.
