El Dorado

A Legendary Land of Wealth & Happiness!

Each month the SUNBURST proclaims El Dorado to be “a legendary land of wealth and happiness.” El Dorado is a place where wealth and happiness are free for the taking. 

El Dorado Homes Association was incorporated September 20, 1969. The major developers of the subdivision were Shepherd & Burris and Morton/Southwest.

When the subdivision first started, it was outside the city limits. Cattle grazed in bluebonnet fields. Seven windmills operated in the confines of El Dorado, and the lake was actually a cow pond.

A local dairy made home delivery, and deer were everywhere. Perrin Beitel and Nacogdoches were two lane roads. The nearest place to buy groceries was a Piggly Wiggly at Nacogdoches at Loop 410. There were no restaurants in the area, and the tower of the Americas could be seen from the subdivision.

Today, El Dorado is definitely in the city! The bluebonnets, the deer and the windmills are gone. So is the view of the Tower of the Americas. Nacogdoches and Perrin Beitel are busy city streets complete with city noise and traffic problems. And businesses are all around us, bringing convenience and confusion.

Currently El Dorado is a microcosm of the world. They are people of many races, ages and creeds. They are military and civilian. They are business and agriculture. They are the children, parents and teachers of a neighborhood school. They are all those who enjoy the pool, the lake and the paseo. They are newlyweds who will start their lives here. They are the children who are born and raised here. They are the retired who will grow old.

Indeed, El Dorado is microcosm of the world.

In the diversity of this community there is a wealth of knowledge, happiness, and experience – all free for the taking. The joy and riches of this community can be found in the people. There are many different people who are willing to learn from one another and grow into one diverse community.

El Dorado has a community pool, beautiful trails throughout the community, the elementary is centrally located in the subdivision, and it is close to a couple major highways, as well as the Forum for shopping. All in all it is a wonderful neighborhood to call home.
