HISTORICAL/BIOGRAPHICAL: Shawneeland, which was founded by Don Lamborne (1917-2002) in 1955 as a resort, was originally a 7,000 acres land development at the foot of Great North Mountain in western Frederick County that included 3,000 lots. Over the years, the development evolved from a resort to a subdivision where residents lived all year long. This change made it necessary for the permanent residents to provide basic services for the maintenance of the property. In 1987, the Shawneeland Sanitary District was formed to administer the property. The commission’s work has been considered a great success by the residents.
