History & History Related Items

River Oaks came about due to the Carswell Air Force Base, which was activated in 1942. By the end of the decade, the town had around 2,000 residents. As activity increased at the Army base, the General Dynamics Corporation arrived in the area. This new business in the area helped to increase the number of people coming to live here. River Oaks continued to grow having over 8,000 residents for many years. Around 1980, fewer government contracts came along and the base had less activity. This was reflected in the declining population, though it still remains a comfortable place to live.
