History in a Pecan Shell

The community has no 19th Century history but was developed in the early 1970s as a resort community. The name doesn’t refer to the shape of a lake or bay, but the finding of an actual horseshoe in the lakebed.

Populated by retirees and weekend residents from Austin, the population has more than doubled between 1990 and 2000 when it reported 3,337 residents. The community acquired its own post office in the mid 1990s.
