Great place for a weekend or year-round getaway

Heritage Lake was developed in 1972 as a scenic place for a weekend getaway or a vacation.

This held true for about 14 years until 1984 and ‘88 when the number of homes rose from 300 to 750. Today, there are 1,300 homes where people live year-round, and still some summer homes.

With 316 acres of lake, and 10 miles of shoreline, this area has six subdivisions and is run by a Restrictive Covenants and Bylaws by the POA: the Heritage Lake Property Owners’ Association.

POA members can own a home or lot to live year round, or for a weekend getaway or a summer spot.

Besides the lake, there are many different activities and clubs that members can enjoy.

There is a swimming pool, a splash pad, a marina, three beaches, boating, tennis courts, basketball courts and four ponds for fishing. There are shelters all over the area to be rented out for weddings or other gatherings. There is also a garden club, a Bible study, a Heritage Lake Book Club, an extension homemaker’s club, card groups, Heritage Lake Community Services and they have their own newspaper, Heritage Lake Highlights.

They have lake and land security for residents, a few nature preserves, and the Floyd Township Fire Department is on the lake as well.

The lake has its very own cell tower for great cell phone service and there’s a campground with various activities.

Heritage Lake has numerous committees such as a cleanup committee; a lake committee that stocks the lake with fish and provides rules and regulations for boaters; a committee responsible for removing silt at the bottom of the lake; a planning committee where they help the area to plan for future growth; a neighborhood watch committee; an architectural environmental committee for those building a new home or making additions; a campground committee that provides recreational opportunities for campers through work and social activities; and a government committee that is the liaison for the Putnam County Commissioners and county council.

They have an election committee where three board members each year are up for election (nine members in total).

“We have a total of 2,980 lots,” Property Manager Blake Price said. “We have about 1,350 homes that are built out of the 2,980 lots. We still have about 1,400 lots that aren’t built on, but a lot of those homes sit on two lots.”

Schools here are in the North Putnam School Corporation.
