The neighborhood of Eastern Hills, often referred to as
Meadowbrook Hills, is a community nestled along the northeastern corner of the main Meadowbrook
neighborhood. This area, lying around six miles east of the Fort Worth Central Business District
is included in the1868 James G. Martin Survey and the 1881 J.B. Haney Survey. It is bordered on the
north by I-30, the east by Oak Hill Rd., the south by Meadowbrook Dr. and the West by Weiler Blvd.
One of the early owners of land in Eastern Hills was Clement A. Boaz,
the grandson of early settler Samuel Boaz of Birdville, Texas. Clement Boaz sold a large portion of his
land in 1952 to Dallas developer Harold B. Pressley who formed the Eastern Hills Development Company and
began developing the area in 1953. In 1955, the northern edge of Eastern Hills was sold to the Texas Turnpike
Authority for the construction of I-30, the Dallas Turnpike.
One of the major roads running through the area is Brentwood Stair Road.
This road is a combination of Stair Road, a road running east from Cooke's Lane named after A.M. Stair,
an early property owner, and Brentwood Drive. In 1962 these roads were connected to form Brentwood Stair Road.
In 1972, part of Ederville Road to the west of Brentwood Hills was also renamed Brentwood Stair.
In 1958 John D. Granger developed a portion of Eastern Hills, and in 1983,
John S. DeLong, Ginger DeLong and Charles Kelly developed the Amblewood Town homes.
The Eastern Hills neighborhood is a wooded area dominated by sprawling
homes on oversized lots. Ranch-style designs are most prevalent, with a few two story or split-level residences.
There are also a few town homes in the area. Restrictions include that homes contain at least 1,200 square
feet of living space, they must be at least 40 percent masonry and no offensive or noxious trade will be carried
out in the neighborhood.
