District Sign   #1 Battle Creek District

Battle Creek is both a planning district and a neighborhood. The district also includes the Highwood Hills and Sunray Neighborhoods. Battle Creek is named after a stream that feeds into Pigs Eye Lake. The creek is named after a small battle between rival Indian tribes in 1842.

Highwood Hills Neighborhood Sign   Highwood Hills Neighborhood

Highwood Hills was developed in an area of rolling hills. It featured narrow curving roads to give the neighborhood some character. This did not have a wide appeal, so development was slow until the automobile became common after WWII and the roads were improved.

Dayton's Bluff District Sign   #4 Dayton's Bluff District

Dayton's Bluff was plated in 1857 by Lyman Dayton, a land and railroad speculator from Vermont. It was developed to be an exclusive neighborhood for wealthy people. By the 1880s, its potential as an exclusive area had run its course, and the neighborhood developed in a more economically and socially diverse manner.
