During the 19th century, steamboats made regular stops near Yelverton''s settlement. Starting around 1830, riverfront businesses began to relocate to the high land above the river, and a new Highland business district was born. The West Shore Railroad was completed in 1883, with a station at the riverfront. The area was called Highland Landing. The Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge, now the Walkway Over the Hudson, was completed in 1888, and in 1897, a trolley line began operation from Highland Landing up to the Highland village and, from there, westward. Highland had a new claim to fame as the Gateway to Ulster County.
