The community began as a vision of a private resort community in the minds of Ellis Ellerman and Ira Nathan in 1961. The men began planning and hired engineers. In 1962, the men formed the Trails Lake Development Corporation and began selling lots. Financial troubles led to the men taking on more investors, including R.T. Crow. And in 1966, due to continued financial struggles for the original developers M.T. Crow and his company took over the project. It was Crow that took the project from a mere planned community to an actual town. Fearing annexation from neighboring communities a portion of the community sought incorporation and was officially incorporated in 1975 as Harbor Town.
