Noma - "Where Everybody Knows Everybody"

Noma - Holmes County, Florida

Named after the Noma Mill Company, the sleepy town with a population of 211 earned its first charter in 1904 during the timber rush.

Over a century later, the old sawmill is no longer operational, but almost fittingly Noma’s Mayor Robert “Buddy” Skipper and his family own and live on the historic site.

Across from the town hall is Noma’s park, including a baseball field. The park was renamed after the long-standing Mayor, where a monument and pavilion are dedicated in his honor.

You can often find residents fishing and skipping rocks in local creeks. Parents can come and relax at the local park and let their children play!

Every year, volunteers come together around Christmas to make fruit baskets to give out to town residents. They also put on the Annual Holiday meal.
