Highland was at one time an inland post office with Mr. Paden as postmaster. He also operated a tavern as this was on the Iuka and Fulton stage coach route. Highland was merely a stop for the change of mail, passengers and horses. In earlier days one store and a few homes comprised the village. The old families were: Blounts, Gardners, Padens, Ransom, Davis, Dillis and McRaes. Highland Baptist Church, on of the older churches in the county, was known for the annual all day harp singings in August.
