Welcome to White Oak

Nestled in the rolling hills and piney woods of North East Texas, White Oak is located in on US Highway 80 in Gregg County about 125 east of Dallas. White Oak welcomes you home to safe neighborhoods, superior schools, family oriented living, and genuine community spirit.

From little league baseball games to the White Oak Roughneck Day Festival, White Oak offers all residents a higher quality of life.

Once simply a bedroom community to Longview, White Oak has matured into a city that offers modern services and conveniences, while maintaining the friendliness and tranquility for which it has always been known.

White Oak remains a small town (the current population per the 2010 census is 6,469), but its advantageous location just west of Longview, White Oak residents are able to enjoy small town living and still conveniently take advantage of cultural and shopping opportunities in a large, metropolitan area.
