Sanford in the 20th C

Sanford was incorporated in 1877 with a population of just over 100 people, but some of the most interesting parts of the city's history took place in the 20th century, starting with the city becoming the Seminole county seat in 1913. The year 1942 saw the establishment of Naval Air Station Sanford, which was home to over 1,500 enlisted men and 350 officers at the height of its operation. The year 1971 saw the opening of Walt Disney World in nearby Orlando, leading to a massive influx of tourism in the area that allowed the city to grow and develop quicker than ever.
