Sanford is a city located in the central region of the U.S. state of Florida. It is the county seat of Seminole County. The area was first settled in the mid-19th century, and the city was officially incorporated in 1877. Early settlers were primarily involved in the citrus industry, and the city’s growth was largely driven by this industry until the Great Freeze of 1894-95, which devastated the citrus crop.
In the early 20th century, Sanford began to develop as a transportation hub, with the establishment of a railroad and a port on Lake Monroe. This led to a growth in manufacturing and tourism.
In the mid 20th century, Sanford experienced a period of civil rights activism, including the integration of the city’s schools in the 1970s and the establishment of a Martin Luther King Jr. holiday in the 1980s.
In recent years, Sanford has undergone a revitalization, with the development of the downtown area, including the creation of a marina and the restoration of historic buildings. The city also has a growing arts and culture scene, and is home to the Orlando Sanford International Airport.
