Whiteland is ten miles west of Brady in western McCulloch County. It was a stop on the Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railway, when the railroad built through the area in 1911. It was named for the White family, who donated land for the settlement. A post office opened in 1912. In 1914 the community had a general store and fifty residents.
