Welcome to Wise County
Wise County is Not Out Of The Way, Just Out Of The Ordinary! Until recently, Wise County has been one the best-kept secrets in north central Texas. As with any secret, however, word is getting out . . . The expansion in recent years of the Alliance Corridor in northwest Tarrant County, and the Texas Motor Speedway in Denton County, have brought unparalleled growth to our area.
Just north of the heart of the Fort Worth metropolitan area, and less than an hour from DFW International Airport, Wise County provides convenient access to any product your heart desires. But what makes Wise County out of the ordinary is our community culture.
Come and visit Wise County. You can shop in our stores, study our history, and meet some friendly people. Take a look at our homes, new and old, and you will be amazed at the value. Visit our banks where you get to talk to a real, live banker that can handle your financial needs in a personal way. And don’t worry if you fall in love with our way of life because, whether for a day or a lifetime, you’re welcome in Wise County.

40 Gallon Challenge
What is the 40 Gallon Challenge?
The 40 Gallon Challenge is a call for residents and businesses to reduce our region’s water use on average by 40 gallons per person, per day. The challenge began in 2011 as a voluntary campaign to increase water conservation.
The 40 Gallon Challenge encourages people to save a minimum of 40 gallons a day by adopting new water-saving techniques. The pledge card outlines water-saving practices and the daily water-savings to expect. You can use the pledge to review the water-saving practices that you or your family currently puts to use. By pledging new practices, you will see the total daily savings expected for your household
To start saving water and take the challenge, go to the website and complete the checklist of water-saving practices. The checklist includes both indoor and outdoor water-saving tips.
