Nuttinglikit Grove was plotted, established and plotted out by Edwin P. Nutting many years ago. The homeowner association documents that govern the use of real estate in Nuttinglikit Grove were recorded with Lee County Courts in September 1955. Bonita Springs was certainly a much smaller town then and real estate development wasn’t nearly what it would eventually become.
The documents for the Nuttinglikit Grove association are a glimpse into yesteryear. The entire set of documents is simply six pages long. Life was more uncomplicated in 1955, wasn’t it? Bonita Springs Florida real estate became more complicated over the years or maybe the developers did.
