Lake Martin’s Most Scenic Subdivision

A PLACE OF HISTORY AS WELL AS BEAUTY

Indian Shores is not only quite beautiful, but it is an historical subdivision as well.  The developer, George McMillan, Sr., purchased 200 acres on Lake Martin in 1965 from the Carroll Estate of which 40 acres was passed onto him from a homesteaded deed that was signed by President James Buchanan, the 15th President of the United States.

The imprints of a major stagecoach road are still visible in the subdivision.  An old log cabin, a former residence of several Carroll generations built before the invention of nails, was completely erected with wooden pegs.  A short distance away, a nearby year-round spring with an adjacent large flat rock was the site where families who lived in the log house did their annual “hot killing” and the weekly family “washboard paddle stick” wash.  The logs from the cabin and stones from the fireplace were used in the building of a modern rustic house currently located in the subdivision.

INDIAN SHORES TODAY

After acquiring the property in 1965, the developer subdivided the area into 275 lots of which 52 were waterfront lots and received State Health Department approval in 1966.  All roads in the subdivision were given Indian related names with the main road designated as Arrowhead Road.

All property owners have gated access to approximately 800 feet of choice waterfront on beautiful Lake Martin, two large piers and a year-round boat launching ramp.  Wildlife such as deer, turkey and silver fox are seen frequently.

Indian Shores is located midway between Walnut Hill (where Hwy 50 and Hwy 49 cross) and Martin Dam just off Hwy 50, a short distance down Bama Park Road.  It is there you will see the unique Indian Shores teepee sign.
