The Wedgwood Historical Association (WHA) is a nonprofit corporation with a deep appreciation for midcentury architecture and design, dedicated to empowering and preserving our community.
Wedgwood Historical Association (WHA) is a nonprofit corporation with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status founded in March 2021 whose mission is to:
For our purposes, the physical boundaries of Wedgwood are those of the neighborhood associations. There are some houses in Wedgwood East that are listed as being in the South Hills addition on property information but are generally referred to as being part of Wedgwood.
INCLUSIVITY STATEMENT: While the Wedgwood Historical Association wishes to celebrate the architecture and design of the houses of Wedgwood and to gather information and memories about the neighborhood’s history, we fully recognize that Wedgwood has not always been welcoming or accepting of non-white or non-Christian families. The “happier life” promised by the developers of Wedgwood in 1955 was not initially available to all residents of Fort Worth, and not everyone’s memories and experiences of this time will be pleasant. A unique and wonderful aspect of Wedgwood is its diversity in ranch house styles. WHA hopes that our endeavors will acknowledge the similar diversity of the neighborhood’s current population and help to foster a community that truly welcomes and appreciates ALL of our residents.
