The Chimney Sweep

Serving Whitehouse, Texas Since 1975

The town of Whitehouse, Texas is located six miles Southeast of Tyler, on Farm Road 346 and State Highway 110 and boasts an intriguing history. Back in the 1830s, travelers from Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and surrounding states were passing through on their way to help defend the Alamo. Little did they know, the battle was already over. 

On their way back, they were dazzled by the rolling countryside of East Texas. They were so impressed, in fact, that they returned to their home states only to pack up their families and move to little Whitehouse, Texas. Approaching the 1850s, Whitehouse had begun to flourish agriculturally. This area became known for growing tomatoes, watermelons, and peaches, as well as vegetables and cotton.  

Soon a railroad was laid down, and cotton gins and sawmills cropped up. This provided industrialized work for the growing town. It’s said that Whitehouse got its name from a white building near the railroad that served as a school, church, and meeting place. Over the course of history, the original settlement of 75 eventually blossomed to 500 during the Texas oil boom. However, the population rose and fell throughout the 1900s. Nowadays, the population sits around 8,489. 

To honor its humble beginnings, Whitehouse hosts an annual YesterYear event, offering an event that transports visitors back in time. Guests are encouraged to browse local arts and crafts exhibits, watch western-style shootout shows, and even enjoy demonstrations of old-world skills. 

If you’re a history buff, Whitehouse Texas has plenty to explore! And if you’re a proud resident of Whitehouse, it’s important to keep up on your home inspections. That’s where The Chimney Sweep is here to help.
