Montclair Highlands was one the earlier subdivisions in Montclair.  Located in the hills back of Piedmont and just above Montclair’s Business district or the “Townsite” as locals called it in 1925.

“Montclair Business Center as the name indicates is the tract opened as a community trading district”.   Oakland Tribune May 17, 1925

“Montclair Highlands is separated by the Business Center from the original Montclair” (more on that later).  Oakland Tribune May 17, 1925

Montclair Highlands fronts out overlooking the bay and beyond.

“It is said that the elevation of Montclair highlands affords a view which surpasses anything from any other point in Oakland”.  Oakland Tribune May 17, 1925

The wonderful panorama afforded from the “Top of the World” is available to you all today – to be framed permanently by the windows of the home you will build”   C P Murdock  Vice President of the Realty Syndicate – Oakland Tribune May 31, 1925.
