The original town of Highland Park, Texas was founded in 1891. The city’s first resident was Thomas L. Marsalis, who partnered with him in the development of the Oak Cliff neighborhood. Armstrong later sold his stake in the meatpacking industry to establish his own meatpacking company. Then, he invested in 1,326 acres of the former Philadelphia Place property and developed Highland. In addition, he consulted with his son-in-law, Edgar Flippen, and George E. Kessler to plan the new city. The original plan included a green belt, and twenty percent of the land was set aside for parks. The second Highland is the neighborhood that contains the Park Cities YMCA.
