Whittier Heights is named for the 19th Century New England poet John Greenleaf Whittier, known for his love of nature and humankind. Whittier Heights boasts majestic topography, stunning views of natural beauty, and neighborhood-defining architectural landmarks.
Two of these include our 36-foot-tall Whittier Heights spire, located along Providence Road, and the most recognized Whittier Heights landmark; a circa 1760 restored New World Dutch Barn located adjacent to one of our tranquil stocked ponds.

Our outdoor activity-friendly neighborhood is adjacent to Colleyville’s 27 acres of McPherson Park.

A renovated dairy barn features photos and replicas of actual milking operations.
