Meeting Recap August 21, 2014

 

Our featured speaker was Dr. Ted Campbell, Associate Professor of Church History at SMU's Perkins School of Theology. He lives in the Moss Farm area.  Several years ago, he began a history of the Lake Highlands area--especially around the Moss Farm area.  According to Dr. Campbell, Harry S. Moss was a Canadian who came to Dallas and became a very successful oil man.  He later bought about 400 acres in the Lake Highlands area for a horse farm. (He actually lived in Highland Park.)  When he died, his estate sold part of the property for residential development and gave the balance to the City of Dallas for the current Moss Park--one of the city's larger park properties.
