The Village of Wellington is a village west of West Palm Beach known for its many beautiful parks and equestrian interests. Its history began in the 1950’s when Charles Oliver Wellington, an accountant from Massachusetts, purchased 18,000 acres. In 1959, Roger Wellington inherited the land after his father passed. They sold 1,200 acres to farmers in the 1960’s. In 1972, Roger Wellington sold 7,200 to land developer Jim Nall of Ft. Lauderdale to turn Wellington into a planned unit development. This is when the construction of Lake Wellington began as well as neighborhoods, a golf course and a country club. In 1995, the village of Wellington was incorporated as an official village of Palm Beach County. It’s internationally known for its equestrian sporting events. From January to April, Wellington hosts the Winter Equestrian Festival, the largest and longest running horse show in the world. Wellington also has the Wellington Environmental Preserve which features nature trails, an observation tower and an equestrian trail/ As Palm Beach County residents ourselves, all of our movers at Lux Moving and Storage are active members of the community as well as dedicated movers of the West Palm Beach area.
