Whitewright TX Real Estate & Homes for Sale

Whitewright is a small town straddling the Grayson-Fannin county line, located approximately half an hour southeast of the county seat of Grayson County, Sherman. The town was established in 1878 when its namesake, New York investor and financier William Whitewright Jr., purchased land around the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad upon which the town would soon be built. The connection to the railroad, as well as the land being located in the heart of the richest farmland in Grayson, helped Whitewright grow to the town it would become within a decade.

Living in Whitewright

Around 1,800 have made Whitewright their home in the Lone Star State, which was also the home of U.S. Army Lieutenant Joe Meador. As one of the members of the 87th Armored Field Artillery Division Battalion, Meador was tasked with guarding a cache of treasures from Quedlinburg Abbey in Quedlinburg, Germany near the end of WWII. However, he sent eight artifacts via army mail back to Whitewright due to their high value. After his passing in 1980, his brother and sister attempted to sell the eight pieces, only for a long judicial process to come about; the eight pieces returned to Quedlinburg in 1993.

Average commute time to and from Whitewright is 29.5 minutes according to DataUSA.io, with 6.39 percent of workers undertaking super-commutes of 90 minutes or greater. Public transit is scant at best, so a car (or two, the average number in town) is a must.

Most of Whitewright is in Grayson County, with a portion in the northeast extending into Faninn County. U.S. 69 is the major highway running through town, connecting Whitewright to Denison in the north, Greenville and Tyler to the south. Texas State Highway 11 connects the town to the county seat of Sherman in the heart of Grayson. The town is surrounded by unincorporated land on all sides.

Major employers in Whitewright include: Tiger Ridge Manufacturing, Whitewright ISD, and the City of Whitewright.

Whitewright Parks and Attractions

Just south of Whitewright is Skydive Spaceland Dallas.

Movie and history buffs will love making Odeum Theater their second home in Whitewright. Originally the Odeon Theater, the historic movie theater was established in 1914, changing hands a few times over the course of its original near-six-decade run. The Odeum was remodeled and reopened in 2000, then reopened on two separate occasions under two different owners in 2013 and 2015, respectively.

One of the more unique attractions in Whitewright is its film industry. The town has been the backdrop for a handful of films in recent memory, such as 2013’s Red Wing featuring the late Bill Paxton, the indie film John & Claudia, and the Christian film Run the Race. Thus, you could be seeing famous film stars working in Whitewright’s historic downtown in the future, especially if you’re an extra.
