Historic Highland bungalow on HGTV Sunday, April 22 at 10 PM; Drake-Jones house on Gilbert Dr

The historic Highland neighborhood will receive national attention, says the Highland Area Partnership, when one of its bungalows is featured on HGTV. The Gilbert Drive home of Kenneth Koonce was shot by High Noon Productions for the series If Walls Could Talk. The episode featuring Mr. Koonce’s home airs Sunday, April 22, 2007 at 10 PM.

According to the HGTV website, “If Walls Could Talk shares lore and intrigue from homes rich in history--some good, some notorious. Many of the featured buildings have housed famous (or infamous!) characters, while others are the sites of significant historical events. Some of the selected structures are simply filled with good stories or were home to everyday folks with colorful pasts."

This was HGTV and High Noon Productions’ third visit to Historic Highland. They previously featured a Fairfield Ave home on the 2002 series Great Places to Live. The Stoner Avenue Fire Station was featured on a previous episode of If Walls Could Talk. The producers apparently like our quaint neighborhood, because they recently asked for assistance in locating other area homes.
