The White Lake Hills Neighborhood Association was formed in 1977 by a group of about 30 residents who wanted to save the “White Lake,” an old East side fishing hole along Oakland blvd. The late Ted C. Peters, the original developer of White Lake Hills, wanted to fill in the lake with dirt rather than pay for ordered repairs to the earthen dam. Residents formed the “White Lake Association” to save the lake. A large delegation of residents drove to Austin for a special “lake hearing.” The lake’s owner did make the repairs to the earthen dam. The lake was later deeded to “The White Lake School” and then changed hands several times. The land around the lake is owned by the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth.Nolan Catholic does have future plans for the lake  land and the shopping center on Oakland Blvd,

 It is not a fishing hole, today. The fish from this lake should not be eaten, because of the pollution of pesticides in the lake.

FROM THE 1970’s to 1992

Through the years, Jack White, White Lake resident, has been instrumental in keeping the neighborhood association afloat. Jack and the late Jean Wysatta published a newsletter to keep residents up to date on governmental issues. During these years, dues were charged and the residents did not have formal meetings or neighborhood activities. A resident directory was published.

Some battles were won and lost through the years. Residents fought issues from “the dump” to new entrance portals. Sometimes buses were chartered and long hours were spent at City Hall.


In 1992, the organization was reformed with new bylaws, neighborhood activities, and new officers. The present 550 plus homes have been developed into a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The neighborhood is historic because of the “White Lake Dairy” and farm located on Oakland Blvd., from I30 all the way to 1st Street. The White Lake Silo still stands on Oakland Blvd., towering over I-30. The farmhouse was located where “East Side Montesorri School” stands, today.

To the west of our neighborhood, we have two fine private schools, East Fort Worth Montesorri Academy and Nolan Catholic High School.

We have dues of $20.00 a year and our organization operates as a non-profit organization whose members work in the bustling metroplex area of Fort Worth and Dallas.
