While the first homes were built before major construction started in 1971 it’s rare to find homes built prior to the mid-1970’s. Wellington offers guard gated, unman gated and non-gated communities throughout. Lot sizes vary from development to development, but the average lot size in gated communities is less than 1/4 acre while non-gated communities tend to offer at least 1/4 acre to well over 1 full acre. To date, Wellington only has two active adult 55+ communities; Mayfair, a gated condo community and Buena Vida, an upscale guard gated single family home community.

Wellington real estate agents understand this is a big draw for those relocating from other areas in Florida and out of state.

History

Wellington was originally the world’s largest strawberry patch until the 1950’s when Charles Oliver Wellington, an accountant from New York, bought 18,000 acres of swampland. It was purchased through his real estate agent, Arthur William “Bink” Glisson, and named it Flying C.O.W Ranch. “Flying” because Wellington was an aviator, who once used Flying Cow Road as a landing strip for his planes, and C.O.W. for his initials.

Wellington Florida History | Wellington Florida SwamplandShortly after Wellington purchased the swampland it went from waterlogged to fertile farmland when the State of Florida passed legislation creating the Acme Drainage District in 1953, which provided drainage and flood control. Wellington served as the first Chairman of Acme Drainage District until his death in 1959 and Bink was the first employee and general manager. Once the property was suitable for agriculture, tracts were sold or leased to farmers in the 1960’s, which is when Wellington became the world’s largest strawberry patch.

While Wellington was populated in the 1950’s major construction did not begin until the first 7,400 acre tract of land was sold in 1971. In 1972 Wellington was approved by Palm Beach County as a planned unit development and “officially” born on December 31, 1995 when it was incorporated.
