White Settlement history:

The White Settlement area was settled beginning in 1850. The first settlerswere farmers from such eastern states as Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, etc.The area was referred to as White Settlement because it was the only community outside the fort (Fort Worth) that was settled entirely by whitepeople. All of the other communities were mixed Indian and Whites. Thearea was about 10 miles west of the fort. Early settlers were harassed byhostile Indians...but soon made friends of them and did considerable trading with those in the area. The land was rich and produced bumper cropsof corn, grain, etc. A mill was established and the area did considerabletrading, not only with the Indians, but other whites in the vicinity.

The community remained more or less the same until 1940, when a bomberplant was built on the shores of Lake Worth in the area. The governmentbuilt temporary housing for workers and businesses were established. In 1941 the city was incorporated and after the war continued to grow with the General Dynamics plant and other businesses. No farms remain within the city limits today. The community itself is rich in sales taxes and motel taxes and provides great parks, a public library, recreation department, senior services and first class fire and police protection. It is completely surrounded by Fort Worth, but still has some room for development.
