History

In 1972 Austin Savings and Loan Owners began development on 600 acres (2.4 km2) of land. In 1978 the homeowners organized the Shady Hollow Homeowners Corporation to counter what they believed was misrepresentation from the developer. The homeowners accused Austin Savings and Loan Owners of installing development more dense than advertised. The two groups formed an agreement, resulting in the creation of parks and recreational facilities along Slaughter Creek; this included the Park on Doe Run. The CDP also received several amenities, including a community center, tennis courts, and a basketball court. In 1984, as per the agreement, Austin Savings and Loan Owners deeded the park and recreational facilities to the Shady Hollow Homeowners Corporation.[3]
