Lakeside

Located in Northside, Lakeside offers a charming small-town feel for young families and older generations alike.

Did you know?

Despite no lakes in the area, Lakeside got its name from Major Lewis Ginter in the 1800s when he named his bicycle club Lakeside Wheel Club. He then built Lakeside Park, which is now the Jefferson Lakeside Country Club.
