Overview of Wellington

The beautiful scenery in Wellington, Fla., is only one of the many reasons why people move to the area. Named one of the Top 100 Best Places to Live in 2010 by Money Magazine, Wellington is a modern community with an abundance of cultural, athletic and recreational amenities. Wellington apartments for rent are ideal for settling down, because the community is centered on family friendly events and attractions, and is home to great education and public safety.

Wellington is a world-famous village for equestrian and polo events, and is one of the top destinations for polo attracting professional players from around the globe. As a fairly new village, growth has continued over the past few years and officials believe by 2018 the population will be around 62,800 residents. Still much of the land has not been developed yet, and much of it consists of residential property.

Located in Palm Beach County along the east coast of the state, residents can easily access Fort Lauderdale or South Beach. According to statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau, the population has been increasing dramatically over the past two decades. In 1990, just about 22,000 residents lived in the village, and today more than 57,100 people call Wellington home.

Living in Wellington, FL

The beginning of Wellington started in the 1950s when a successful New York businessman, Charles Oliver Wellington, purchased a large plot of land. Despite the area’s marshy land, as it is bordered on the southwest by the Everglades, Wellington saw promise in the region. In 1953, state legislation passed to provide proper drainage and flood control to the land. This made a drastic difference the land of what is now Wellington. The previously waterlogged land turned into a breeding ground for crops such as strawberries, oranges and other citruses. Nearly 2,000 acres of land was dedicated to the world’s largest strawberry patch.

After the westward expansion of Palm Beach County, a result of a joint venture between the Investment Corporation of Florida and the Alcoa Company, many investors traveled to the undeveloped land. ICOF purchases 7,400 acres of land at roughly $800 per acre, and after a year the company joined with Alcoa to construct a planned community. The region continued to grow as more people traveled west, and by the end of 1995 Wellington became a village.
