In 1870, Henry Shelton Sanford purchased land west of Mellonville and planned a new city, “the Gate City of South Florida”. Citrus growers prospered there until the freeze of 1894 ‐ 1895. After that, farmers began growing vegetables and Sanford was nicknamed “Celery City”. On April 25, 1913, Seminole County was officially established with Sanford as the county seat.
Close to both Orlando and Daytona, Sanford shared in the growth of Central Florida with new neighborhoods such as Bella Foresta, Estates at Wekiva Park, Lake Forest, The Preserve at Astor Farms, Buckingham Estates, Kays Landing, Forest Glen, Buckingham Estates, Berington Club, Venetian Bay. The historic district has many older residences on streets shaded by live oaks hung with Spanish moss.
