SANSOM PARK VILLAGE, TX

SANSOM PARK VILLAGE, TEXAS. Sansom Park Village is a residential community on State Highway 199 five miles west of Fort Worth in west central Tarrant County. It developed when the area was subdivided by the Rosen Heights Land Company in the 1920s. During the 1930s the construction of the Jacksboro Highway increased its number of businesses and its population. The construction of military facilities during World War II and the addition of defense contractors after the war increased the population to more than 1,000 by 1950, the year the community incorporated. In the 1960s Sansom Park Village reported 5,000 residents, but by 1990 this number had dropped to 3,928.
