History[edit]

The land that now encompasses Hideaway was originally included in the large plantation owned by Texas governor Richard B. Hubbard.[3] Later, the land was purchased by developer James Fair. In 1967, Fair planned and developed the land, naming it "Hide-A-Way Lake."[4] The community was slated to contain 1,350 acres (5.5 km2) with a total 1,944 residential lots.[3] In 2000, the community, then managed by Hideaway Homeowners, Inc. (which is the HOA) and Hideaway Lake Club, Inc. (which operates the golfing facilities) merged, forming a municipal corporation known as Hideaway Lake Club, Inc.[3]

Education[edit]
