It may be difficult to believe, but 2015 marks the anniversary of the start of the Vineyards at Jockey's Neck.  While the land and development were in motion a few years prior, homes began to spring up in our community in 1990 as you can see in the aerial photograph below.  The first 3 were 2596, 2605 and 2609 Jockey's Neck Trail following the next year by 2594 Jockey's Neck Trail.

The history of the land our neighborhood is on is quite interesting and dates back to the earliest time in the new world and a quick overview of that history can be found on "Our History" page by clicking HERE.  Recent history is also quite interesting too!  Did you know that a mill building and covered bridge were contemplated to be placed at the dam between the lakes?  Here is the concept rendering from 1987 of it:

Today our neighborhood has matured to a lovely and vibrant community with only a handful of empty lots from which to build and while we have come a long way, the HOA is focusing one where we are headed!
