    Club History

    In May of 1933, Thomas Bain of Texarkana signed over the water rights to a flowing spring to the newly incorporated Glass Club Lake. The agreement “extended privileges to any stockholder to beautify and make said spring more attractive, to care for and do such improvements as necessary”. The Glass Club Springs were enclosed by a large semicircular stone wall and reportedly still in use piping fresh water to nearby cabins as late as 1977. Several other springs feed Glass Club Lake on the south and southwest sides.


    "The Club"

    The Club was established in 1933 as a Texas Corporation;it consists of no more than 100 shareholders, each of which own one share in the entire property. There are 80 home sites around the lake and provisions for 20 club members to have lake use only privileges. By purchasing a share of stock or a home with a share of stock; the shareholder gains an equal interest in all the lands and lake through this stock ownership. The lake community is managed by the Glass Club Lake Board of Directors elected by the shareholders at the clubs annual meeting.
