Located in the beautiful Palm Beach County in Florida is Wellington, which began much like so many other locations in Florida, as swampland. Purchased by C. Oliver Wellington in the 1950’s Wellington finally became a reality in the early 70s as a planned unit development and remained an unincorporated community with only a few shopping centers until the mid-’90s. Since then it has become the home of many notable figures and celebrities, and the home of many tourist attractions.
