History

The area was privately owned by General Henry Armstrong until a confrontation with tenant farmers led to reform. The community was then named Griffins Corner after a local businessman. The name was later changed to the current name to honor Julius Fleischmann, a businessman who donated land for a park. [1]. Julius' father, Charles Fleischmann, founder of the yeast company and distilleries that bear his name, began establishing summer homes for his family in the 1890s. His friends joined him, forming the nucleus of the modern village.
