John Henry Brock purchased land in the area in 1876. By 1892, the community had multiple businesses, a post office, and a school.[1] In November 2016, local voters approved a proposition to incorporate Brock.[2] At the same time, the nearby city of Weatherford investigated the process of involuntarily annexing land in or near the Brock area.[3]

The Brock Independent School District serves area students. In 2015, Brock High School won the 3A State Championship for football as well as the UIL Lone Star Cup.
