Shady Shores, TX

The Town of Shady Shores currently has a population of approximately 2610 and covers 2.9 square miles of property just south of Denton, Texas. Shady Shores’ residents take pride in being a small bedroom community (with nary a stop light or convenience store to be found). A look back at the town beginnings will help establish your perspective.

In the mid-1920’s, John William Franck, a Dallas contractor, built a fishing camp with about 10 wood-shingle cabins on the northern shores of Lake Dallas. He had this in mind as a weekend retreat for Dallas residents. In the 1930’s, many of the fishing camps were torn down and replaced by permanent homes, a number of which are still standing.

The community thrived, and in 1932, a nearby subdivision called Shady Shores began construction. The lake was enlarged in the late '50s, becoming what is now known as Lake Lewisville. In 1960, the city leaders decided to incorporate – mostly to escape being annexed by Denton – and the subdivision's name became the name of a newly formed town. 

Today Shady Shores is a thriving community that boasts excellent fire, emergency and police protection, provided by The Lake Cities Fire Department and the Corinth Police Department. Its residents enjoy a quiet lifestyle with ready access to the lake while being only a short drive from DFW airport, and nearby shopping and restaurants. (Source: Town of Shady Shores)
