The community of Brock, in southwest Parker County, has seen great changes with the city incor- porating and gaining struc- ture. Brock originated in 1871 when a carpenter and cabinet maker named John Brock settled in the area. Brock joined with a man named Willie Brannon
to build a gin and mill at nearby Grissom Springs in 1880.
According to the Texas State Historical Association, in 1892, the town contained a black- smith shop, cotton gin, grist mill, grocery store, post office, and school.

Since 2002, Brock ISD has won 19 state championships including gold medals in mathemat- ics, girls basketball, boys basketball, football, volley- ball, baseball, softball, team tennis, and boys golf.

Facing the threat
of annexation from Weatherford, two commu- nities incorporated in 2017 – Brock and Brock West. The two cities consolidated in a 2018 election. At press time, town leaders and staff were working to establish a city government and ordi- nances.
