History

The name of White Settlement was originally bestowed upon the community by the Native Americans. In the early 1840s ... when much of the territory was unsettled, the area became known as the “white settlement” because it was inhabited and settled by non-Native Americans, or “the whites.” Later, many of the Native Americans settled in the area, and it remains the name of the city that constitutes the eastern portion of White Settlement ISD. WSISD is now a community that prides itself on its culturally diversity.
