Sanford was established in 1877 which makes our beautiful city 136 years old. That makes it as old as the Washington Post or the Wimbledon tennis championship. Thomas Edison was also quite busy this year. More historic events of the year 1877 can be found at http://www.historyorb.com/events/date/1877 I thought it would be interesting to see what else happened in the world when Sanford was founded 😉
