Sanford is located on southern Lake Monroe north of Orlando and has a 2000 population of 38,291.   The town was named after Gen. Henry Sanford, a landowner, and was the filming location for the 1991 movie, "My Girl."

In 1913, when Seminole County was carved from Orange County, Sanford, Florida continued as the county seat. Evidence of its governmental functions are the imposing County Courthouse and City Hall near the Lake Monroe waterfront and in the heart of the downtown business district.

The golf links of the Mayfair Country Club had their beginnings in 1921 when the city of Sanford laid out the 18-hole course which was played by many of the big name touring professionals of the day including Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer and the Hebert Brothers. The property was subsequently sold to the New York Baseball Giants who operated the golf course along with their baseball training camp and the Mayfair Inn, which now houses the New Tribes Mission in downtown Sanford.


The Sanford RiverWalk is a beautiful new 1.2 mile walkway along the St. Johns River. The 12-foot-wide paved bike pedestrian pathway is just one step in the revitalization of this beautiful and historic city.

Developers are also continuing with plans for magnificent waterfront town homes and condominiums and brightly painted riverfront shops and restaurants.
