The Historic South Highlands neighborhood in Shreveport Louisiana is located between Richmond Avenue and Bayou Pierre, bounded to the north by Ockley Drive, and on the south by Pierremont Road. The residential area was designed in the 1920s as a suburb of Shreveport near the then separate town of South Highlands and was eventually annexed in 1927. Many of our stately homes date to the 1920s and 30s and are wonderful examples of the architectural influences of those times.
Today, South Highlands residents enjoy the well-manicured Betty Virginia Park in addition to one of Shreveport's most important cultural institutions, The R.W. Norton Art Gallery. We also boast one of the few national Blue Ribbon schools in the state of Louisiana, South Highlands Elementary Magnet School. Our neighborhood includes a vibrant commercial hub with two major shopping centers and a wide variety of highly acclaimed eateries. Eighty years after its original development, South Highlands remains a beautiful place to live in the heart of Shreveport.
