White Rock was at the site of the present intersection of State highways 75 and 289 and Interstate Highway 635, on White Rock Creek ten miles north of downtown Dallas in north central Dallas County. It was established in the late 1840s and had a post office from 1848 to 1851. By 1900 the community was no longer listed on Sam Street's Map of Dallas County, Texas.
