Overview

About Splinter Creek

Splinter Creek is a privately-owned residential community located in Taylor, MS. Originally purchased as a timber investment by the founding family, the untouched beauty and character of property was later discovered and the family exchanged their initial plans for those that include exploring the forests and lakes of Splinter Creek and recharging with community neighbors.

Designed by a handful of creative partners, including New York’s Lang Architecture and Texas’ Lake Flato, Splinter Creek aims to be a model of environmentally sensitive and sustainable living. Encouraging residents to build lightly on the land, the property features spacious lakeside homesites that blend seamlessly into nearly 650 acres of rolling pine forest, lakes, and wetlands.
