The Highland Presbyterian Church (c. 1914) is significant as a vernacular example of the Collegiate Gothic style. The building's flat-roof design and its lack of a steeple was a radical departure for a religious building in small-town Kansas in 1914. The roots of the Highland Presbyterian Church date to 1843 and are closely tied to Highland's beginnings. The small congregation - the oldest Presbyterian church in Kansas - first met at the Sac Fox Indian Mission school building in 1845 two miles east of present-day Highland.
