Oakhurst - Also Nicknamed "The Yucca Neighborhood" bY LOCALS
Located just north of downtown Fort Worth is a neighborhood that is a hidden gem – Oakhurst. Quickly approaching its centennial celebration, the Oakhurst community dates back to 1925. Known for its picturesque, lush green landscape lining neighborhood streets, Oakhurst is populated by residents that take great pride in their community. The active Oakhurst Neighborhood Association has a beautification committee that plants flowers, trims trees, and puts great care into its striking landscaping. Having a quaint, old-time feel, Oakhurst is conveniently and centrally located near Fort Worth’s downtown area, with glimpses of it available from homes situated along Yucca Avenue, which is why it’s also known as the Yucca Neighborhood. Residents enjoy its location near the Trinity River and close proximity to Interstate 35, a main artery in metro Fort Worth.
The neighborhood of Oakhurst has its roots beginning in 1923-24 when Fort Worth businessmen and brothers, John King and Henry King, began development through their company aptly named the Oakhurst Land Company, Inc. The area was experiencing rapid growth associated with an oil boom. Over the decades that followed, up until the current day, Oakhurst has experienced times of growth in step with the city of Fort Worth and the greater Riverside area, particularly during post-war times. Fort Worth continues to develop into one of America’s most progressive cities, and Oakhurst’s commitment to the quality of life for its residents continues to progress as well.
Nearly a century after the Kings first began their development; it is fascinating to compare their vision for Oakhurst with the neighborhood as it exists today. Oakhurst retains much of its original charm, and it is now listed as a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. The winding streets of West Oakhurst and mature oak trees throughout the neighborhood still reflect the original design intent of Hare and Hare, a preeminent landscape architecture firm hired by the King brothers during the period of Oakhurst’s initial development. To this day, Oakhurst residents take great pride in their homes, look out for the well-being of their neighbors, and continue to make the neighborhood a wonderful place to call home.
