The Sanford Museum houses exhibits illustrating the history of the City of Sanford and the life and times of City founder Henry S. Sanford. |
Built as a memorial to Henry Shelton Sanford, the museum houses his library and manuscript collection as well as a collection of 19th century decorative arts which belonged to the Sanford family. Henry S. Sanford, 1823-1891, was a lawyer, diplomat, and innovator in the production of citrus. His papers reflect his entire career and contain information on diplomatic matters and business during the Victorian age. His library contains books and magazines in seven languages which cover law, politics, religion, science, and popular fiction.

Hello, I lived in Winter Springs for 25 years and never knew my 3rd great grand parents were buried there. I have moved out of state, but I will make sure to visit them on a return visit. I was so thrilled to see their find a grave.
I listed edits for them from my information. Almiras maiden name was Hodges. She was born in Vermont. Jan.16,1816.
They did not die in Palm Beach. Palm Springs was actually a name of a city in the 1800's.
My 2nd great grand mother was their daughter Electa Caroline Howe who, along with her sister Louisa Almira married brothers Roswell Dewey, and Truman Edwin Fuller. The Fullers were a big part of the founding of Altamonte Springs. More info. can be found in the Maitland library.
Thank you so much, Connie Heskett

Thank you for putting up the form that you did. It saddens me that there is no marker, but I did glean some very useful information from what you posted.
