Granite Shoals, TEXAS
City of Granite Shoals was founded in 1966 by a popular vote of its citizens, and has over the past 45 years, expanded by annexations. Most of the city is located within the Sherwood Shores subdivisions, which were a large 1960′s era lakeside land development. It is said that the 11,000 lots made the Sherwood Shores subdivisions the then largest platted subdivision in the state of Texas.
The city was named for Lake Granite Shoals, the original name given for Lake Lyndon B. Johnson. The original lake was so named for the shorelines of beautiful native granite outcroppings. The original residents of the city were primarily families who wanted a second home on the lake and retirees. While these two population groups are still strong, GS has become a destination community for people seeking to escape the stresses of large cities, and for families who desire an affordable, comfortable lifestyle.
Granite Shoals has 18 Parks, 16 are lakeside
