History of Watauga, TX
WATAUGA, TEXAS. The first permanent residents arrived after the Civil War. The name is a Cherokee word for “village of many springs”. The area is supposed to have been occupied by Cherokees at one time.
Watauga developed as a loosely organized area of relatively large farms and ranches, and did not become a recognizable community until the early 1880s. The organization of the settlement was spurred by the extension of the tracks of the Texas and Pacific Railway through the area in 1881 when a station opened.
In 1883, Watauga received a post office. The school registered 26 pupils and employed one teacher during the 1896–97 term. Watauga’s population was 65 in the mid 1930s, by which time its railroad depot had ceased operations. It reported an identical population ten years later.
Like many Tarrant County communities that surround Fort Worth, Watauga emerged from its period of decline during the post-World War II years due largely to the development of defense plants in the area. Watauga’s population was: 1,012 in the mid 1960s, 7,050 residents in 1976, 20,009 by 1990. In 2000 the population was 21,908, and 2010 population stood at 23,555
