Glenn Heights

Wikipedia says:

Development of the community dates back to the late 1960s. N.L. ‘Moe’ Craddock, a Dallas firefighter, opened a 30-acre (120,000 m2) mobile home park in the area. He helped push for the incorporation of Glenn Heights to prevent his business from being annexed by the city of DeSoto. The town was officially incorporated on September 16, 1969.
