After construction of White Rock Lake was completed in 1910, the city of Dallas began several projects which increased recreational appeal of the area and helped spur residential development. Homes began popping up in the 1920s and development accelerated throughout the 1930s until the late 1950s when the vast majority of lots were built out. Many original homes still remain in Little Forest Hills and the neighborhood has a variety of home styles.
