HIGHLAND TOWNSHIP,

This Township is bounded on the north by Warren county, on the south by Eugene township, on the east by the Wabash river, and on the west by the boundary line of Illinois. It is watered by Spring, Jordan and Jericho creeks, and Coal Branch; all of which take their rise in the north-west, and flow south-east

to the Wabash river.

The area of the township, like the others of the county, is irregular in its sectional lines, and therefore it varies in both its sections and square miles. Its length north and south is from eight to nine miles, and its breadth from five to six.
