Elkins Lake - A Legendary Retreat

Elkins Lake's story begins in the Texas of the 1920s. Here was the private retreat of Judge James A Elkins, Sr., the personal estate of a man whose legal, financial and political interests made him a legend in his own time. Not only did the guest book at the Judge's "Manor House" read like a "Who's Who of Texas", but it is said that downtown Houston skyscrapers changed hands in front of the Judge's fireplace. For over a half century, invitations to social events hosted by The Judge were "musts" to attend.

The Judge built Elkins Lake for his personal enjoyment - a serene refuge from the pressures of everyday living. This spirit and atmosphere still remains today in our community.
