The Enterprise — Marcello Iaia

Light in the night: Evenings at The Highlands Restaurant and Tavern on the Berne-Altamont Road lit up the darkened sky with headlights, neon signs, and the bustle of customers inside. Now, the 1780s’ farmhouse is a quiet scene. The establishment closed this month after eight years, its website reports, due to economic pressures. Through different owners, the location has been a restaurant for several decades, with the earliest Enterprise announcement of the Helderberg Kiwanis Club meeting there in 1964. Starting in 2006, Chef Sheena Tymchyn and Michelle Catalano ran the restaurant with their father, Paul Schneider, who died in 2010.
