WHITE POINT, TEXAS. White Point was a rural community in central Concho County, eight miles south of Paint Rock and three miles west of U.S. Highway 83 at a site on present Farm Road 765. It had a school at least as early as 1920, when the Longview and Oklahoma school districts joined to form the White Point Consolidated School District. In 1936 the settlement had a school, one church, and several scattered buildings. In 1940 the school, which encompassed grades one through ten, had four teachers and an average daily attendance of forty-five students. By 1955 the school had been consolidated with the Paint Rock school district. By 1963 the community had disappeared.
