Cobblestone Square is a small neighborhood eight miles east of the Fort Worth Central Business District, and situated between I-30 and John T. White Road. It is included in the 1884 Wm. Linn Survey and the 1880 John Thresher Survey.

One of the early settlers in the area, around 1908, was L.B. Price, who kept area land in the family until J.D. Price began developing it as a residential subdivision in 1969. Another landowner in the area was G.W. Ratliff, whose family maintained property from 1915 to 1977

One of the main streets bordering the east side of Cobblestone Square was named after Jacob Cooke, who established a camp and trading post in 1870 for teamsters traveling west from Johnson's Station, a settlement later renamed Arlington. The teamsters would stop at this ten acre campground before proceeding north to Birdville (now Haltom City) then west to acquire buffalo hides for later sale in Dallas. The trail these wagons followed later became known as Cooke's Lane.

John T. White Road, at the northern boundary of Cobblestone Square was named for the 1929 superintendent of the Fort Worth School District. John T. White was born in Keller. Ray Rothwell Development Inc. developed much of Cobblestone Square.


Cobblestone Square is a small neighborhood covering only a few blocks surrounded by several open fields. Homes in this area are generally traditional ranch-style brick homes with three bedrooms, two baths and attached two-car garages. There are also occasional one-and-a-half story contemporary homes in the neighborhood.

Restrictions in this neighborhood include limiting antennas to no higher than fifteen feet above the highest roofline, prohibiting any offensive trade, oil drilling or livestock from the properties.


Cobblestone Square has a crime watch group which publishes a newsletter, "The Cobblestone Chronicle" to update residents on reported crime activity and support efforts to curb crime. The newsletter also publishes names of new neighbors, new babies and good neighbor tips. A crime watch chairman is elected each year and each block has a neighborhood captain. Parking stickers and yard signs are distributed, and an annual crime watch meeting is held each August. They also hold an ice cream and hot dog social in July, have a Kiddie Labor Day parade, neighborhood child sitters group and a Christmas decoration committee.
