 Lake Shadows was developed in 1962 by S & M Inc, a group which included, Cyril Smith, Elizabeth Rogers, Carol Bicknell, Samuel Bicknell, and Clinton Anderson. Initially it was comprised of 170+ acres on the east shore of Lake Houston in Harris County Texas. Section One, Two and Three of Lake Shadows were immediately platted. In 1972 Mr Smith ( S& M Inc.) platted an additional 46 + acres and Added them as Section Four of Lake Shadows. In 1973 an additional 81+ acres was platted as Section Five of Lake Shadows. In January of 1994 Mr Eddie Glover and James Walker, being two of the remaining three members of the original committee as defined in the articles of incorporation filed in 1962, delegated the rights and duties of appointing the committee members to the Lake Shadows Civic League. In April of 2006, WCID # 70 ( water and sewer utility), platted an addition of 10+ acres known as Section Six of Lake Shadows. In 2006 Billy Gerhardt developed the original Lake Shadows website and in June 2014, Kerry Rachal developed the current website that is maintained by volunteers.
