About The Area
As a dentist near Annetta, Wood Orthodontics is proud to serve the local area. Annetta is a town in Parker County in northern Texas and named after the daughter of the founder of the settlement, a Mr. Fraser.
The town got its start in the 1870s which means that it is newer than many of the settlements in Texas. Mr. Fraser built a shop and a station on the current site of the town, attracting business and passengers to the area. Before long, Annetta had become a major stop on the route across the country.
Today, the original general store and station no longer exist. The original Annetta Methodist Church, established in 1886 is also gone, replaced by a stone building in 1937. This still stands today and you can see it if you visit the town.
During the 1970s, the population of Annetta and the surrounding area increased dramatically. People moved from across Parker County and the extraterritorial areas of Fort Worth to live in the region. In 1979, the residents decided to incorporate the region, turning three towns, Annetta, Annetta South, and Annetta North into a single community.
Despite its connections to the outside world, though, Annetta remains a small place. According to the 2000 census, the population was just 1,100, with the town only adding around 160 people since that time. Annetta is famous for its Aledo Independent School District.
Most of the people living in Annetta are young. Around 33.5 percent of people are under the age of 18, with a further 31 percent under the age of 44.
The settlement is a relatively prosperous one, with average incomes per household at more than $80,000. Only around 2.2 percent of families were below the poverty line according to the most recent census.
