A place we call home: Nokomis

  • 0

We continue our focus on Suncoast neighborhoods in a series titled “A Place We Call Home.”

In this special report we honor Nokomis. Prehistoric people lived in the Dona and Roberts bay area for thousands of years before the first white settlers arrived. Those first pioneers, Jesse Knight and his family, built their homestead in Nokomis in 1868.
