Forest Hill, Texas

History

Forest Hill, TexasForest Hill began around 1860. The community was called Brambleton Station and Forest Hill Village before being named Forest Hill. By 1896 the community had its first schools and was established as a suburb of Fort Worth. In 1905 Old Mansfield Road and Forest Hill Drive were the city’s two main roads.

The community incorporated as a village on March 16, 1946. In the late 1940s the village had around 90 people. By 1954 the volunteer fire department, the court, and the corporation court opened. The city had 1,519 people in the mid-1950s.

In 1967 the city had 3,800 people; the city grew due to its proximity to Fort Worth. By the early 1970s the city adopted the Forest Hill Home Rule Charter in order to more easily annex territory and to allow for better governance. In the 1970s, it elected its first female mayor, Jackie Larson.
