Description

The lot located at 205 South Sanford Avenue in Georgetown, an historic African-American neighborhood in Sanford, Florida. Georgetown was established by the city's founder, Henry Shelton Sanford (1823-1891), as a suburb for black residents in the 1870s. The neighborhood spans along Sanford Avenue, with its commercial district between First Street and Fifth Street and its historic district between Seventh Street and Tenth Street. Though originally much smaller, Georgetown spanned to its present boundaries from East Second Street to Celery Avenue and from Sanford Avenue to Mellonville Avenue. Georgetown thrived at its height from circa 1880 to 1940, particularly in agriculture and transportation.
