The town experienced an oil boom in the 1930s which resulted to the rapid growth and development of the city. Despite the WWII, the number of residents continued to rise and White Oak was incorporated in 1960. As of 2010, it has a population of 6,469. The city is home to four famous football players, a singer and songwriter, and Kelcy Warren, a billionaire businessman who donated millions in the Texas city of Dallas to have a city park named after his son.
