History of Nedonna Beach
Nedonna Beach was originally a dairy farm, belonging to the grandparents of Robert Riley. They willed it to Robert Riley. He was a graduate engineer. He mapped it, put in the roads and water, and started selling it as beach lots.
When he was in his forties, Robert Riley married Geneva Donna. So she became Geneva Riley nee Donna--thus, Nedonna (which, of course, should be pronounced "knee-donna"). Geneva Avenue is also named after Mrs. Riley.
David and Donald are the two Riley sons. Adah Hidy was the elderly lady who acted as a real estate broker for Riley. We bought our lot from her in 1965. We built a house on it in 1984. We sold the lot and house in January, 2008.
