A Special Welcome from the Mayor Of Highland Falls
We welcome you to the official website of the Village of Highland Falls, a community with an abundance of history. The majesty of the Storm King Mountains, State Parks and the beauty of the Hudson River surround us. Our scenic beauty is drawn from the hills, the Bear Mountain State Park and the United States Military Academy. Nearly four thousand residents live in our village, which was incorporated in 1906.
Our history, dating from pre-Revolutionary times, provides our visitors and residents with an ongoing panorama of our heritage and our place in the founding of our nation.
Highland Falls is blessed with many historic homes, buildings and churches located in the community. There is a downtown business district with many shops and fine eateries.
Highland Falls has many special events throughout the year. Our 4th of July festivities draw thousands of people. It is a fun-filled 2-day celebration with bed races, 5K race, parade and fireworks. Our Fall Foliage Festival is one of the best in the Hudson Valley.
Nothing makes the Village of Highland Falls more of a treasure than its people. No matter how long a person has lived in Highland Falls, we all share that small-town feeling of togetherness. The volunteerism, historic pride and congeniality make Highland Falls a truly unique place.
We would like to have you visit and enjoy all we have to offer!
