Description

The James Edmundson Ingraham House, located at South Sanford Avenue in Sanford, Florida. James Edmundson Ingraham was born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin, and is historically known as an entrepreneur and railroad company executive. In 1874, he moved to Florida and spent most of his career working with Henry Shelton Sanford, Henry Flagler, and Henry Plant.

In 1892, he conducted a survey for the Plant railroad; he started in Fort Myers, traveled through the Everglades, and ended in Miami. It was during this expedition that Ingraham worked with Sydney Octavius Chase, a close personal friend.

Ingraham was employed by Flagler from 1892 through 1897, and then served as land commissioner for the Florida East Coast Railway from 1897 to 1899. He then served as president of Flagler's Model Land Company, as well as an officer of several of Flagler's smaller land companies. Ingraham promoted land sales and thus influenced growth of various Florida towns. He died on October 25, 1924.
