Lakewood

Tight-knit as a multi-aged community, eclectic in nature, and utterly in love with living alongside White Rock Lake, Lakewood is adored for character close to downtown. Prized architects Charles Dilbeck and Clifford Hutsell designed many houses with modern or Spanish styles. Craftsman or Prairie styles fill Junius Heights Historic District. While houses are updated and urban sensibilities integrated, lifestyle is not unlike the idyllic way it began. Folks go to the Lakewood shopping center, which opened in 1924, landmarked with the Lakewood Theater; walk, run, bike, row, and sail around the lake; or play golf at Lakewood Country Club. And kids still attend Woodrow Wilson High School, one of many International Baccalaureate high schools in Texas.
