The small town of Whitehouse is a example of the quote¨big things come in small packages.¨ For one, the town has a great school district and amazing schools. A lot of the stores and gas stations around the town are school spirited and supportive of everything ¨Wildcat¨, as that is the district mascot. Whitehouse also has great law enforcement and has a very low crime rate. There are police and fire crews always on alert so you can always feel safe with just a quick phone call. Even though it is a small town, there are many, many nice restaurants to eat at too. Besides normal fastfood places, there are Mexican restaurants, frozen yogurt and an excellent Chinese buffet. Overall, even with the limitation of space, Whitehouse makes everything seem homely, quiet and spacious, making it a great place to raise children, and to retire.

Great school district, have many community gatherings in the park, very friendly environment, and an overall safe town!
I like Whitehouse because it is small and personable. There is just enough stores to get what you need and it is a quiet, positive little town. I would recommend living here for sure. It's a beautiful place right outside of Tyler, TX.
