The Glen Abbey Story
A history steeped in Texas tradition

Glen Abbey's rich heritage dates back to the 1930s, when legendary Texas oil magnate and philanthropist Clint Murchison bought a parcel of scenic farmland in the then-rural Keller Springs area. Known for its rolling hills, stately oaks, and views of meandering White Rock Creek, the property was considered by many to be the most pristine in North Dallas.

It was in this charming setting that Mr. Murchison chose to build his palatial estate. Here, he found an idyllic locale for raising his children, including Clint Murchison, Jr., longtime owner of the Dallas Cowboys. Over the years, the home was visited by a distinguished list of guests such as Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon, among others. Following Mr. Murchison's death, his son, John, moved to the estate with his wife, Lupe.

In the late 1990s, Lupe Murchison sought a buyer for the estate who would appreciate the extraordinary nature of this land. She selected Folsom Properties because of her relationship with the company and its unparalleled reputation for creating exquisite communities, including Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas and Gleneagles Country Club in Plano.
Today, the property has been transformed by Folsom Properties into the prestigious Glen Abbey community. This remarkable gated neighborhood preserves the Murchison legacy for generations to come, offering those who live here an unparalleled lifestyle amid unspoiled natural beauty.
