Day 28 – Sanford Established 1877

Sanford 1877


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 I thought it would be interesting to see what else happened in the world when Sanford was founded 😉

This picture shows one of the 2 arches at the West entrance of the historic district on First Street.

    We like sanford too. We eat & okay there too. However, the town needs more businesses that thrive in the downtown area. We would enjoy it more.
