Cedar Shores

Cedar Shores is a lakeside community located off Farm Road 56 about ten miles east of Meridian in eastern Bosque County. In the early 1960s William Holloman, owner of American Resort Development, advertised a large resort tract situated along the western shore of Lake Whitney. The property, named Cedar Shores Estates for the regional landscape, consisted of a total of 700 acres. Lake lots covered 400 acres, and an additional 300 acres held recreational facilities, including swimming and picnic areas, playgrounds, and marinas. By 1970 the community had a population of 150. That figure increased to 170 in 1980 and remained constant through 2000. The 2000 census reported the residential development simply as Cedar Shores.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
