The Walsh neighborhood development sits on a total of 7,200 acres, made up of three ranches: North Star, Hildreth and Cline.
The Walsh family dearly loved the ranch and spent a great deal of time entertaining friends and family, and built a beautiful house at North Star. Howard Walsh would spend his Saturdays touring the ranch and checking on the large herd of Charolais Cattle. He loved the land and spent many hours hunting dove and quail with his beloved bird dogs at his side.
In the 1970s, as Interstate 20 was being planned, Howard Walsh had the foresight to work with the City of Fort Worth to install infrastructure under the highway before it was built, allowing for future development. A master roadway plan was also designed for the property and approved by the Fort Worth City Council as part of the City of Fort Worth Master Thoroughfare plan.
In 2000, an original Master Concept plan for the ranch was completed and approved by Fort Worth City Council in 2001.
