CROSS JUNCTION — With several improvements since the early 2000s, current and past Lake Holiday board members believe the gated community in northern Frederick County is flourishing as its 50th anniversary nears.

Established in the late 1960s, Lake Holiday boasts 2,000 acres with 1,800 lots. There are 962 homes with eight more under construction.

The centerpiece of Lake Holiday is a 250-acre, man-made lake that’s 90 feet deep. It was mostly filled by rain from Hurricane Agnes in 1972. Five hundred acres of natural park area also are part of the development.

“It really wasn’t until the 2000s that we had control over everything here and built up our funds to be able to do all of the improvements,” said Lake Holiday Country Club Inc. President Pat Majewski, who has been a resident since 1996. “In the last couple of years, we’ve added lots of new amenities that the community has wanted based on surveys that we’ve taken every few years. … We’re continuing to plan on how to improve.”

The original plan for the community, according to a June 1970 advertisement, was for an “ultra-modern private development for members only” that would lend itself to a property owners association with central water and sewer.
