Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the 230-acre Mt. Hope–Highland Historic District encompasses the Mt. Hope Cemetery, Highland Park, Warner Castle and the Sunken Gardens and more. It once was the exclusive domain of the Ellwanger and Barry Botanic Gardens and Mt. Hope Cemetery throughout the mid- and late-19th century. 
 

The area still retains its elegant and spacious character of park land and the district is punctuated with notable architect-designed buildings like the Warner Castle (1854), a 22-room mansion modeled after a Scottish castle and today houses the offices of Landmark Society of Western New York. The Mt. Hope Cemetery is America's first municipal Victorian cemetery and includes a little Gothic chapel designed by Andrew Jackson Warner.
