Fountain at the Intersection of East First Street and North Park Avenue
Fountain at 1st St. and Park Ave.
Banks and banking--Florida
The fountain at intersection of North Park Avenue and East First Street Sanford, Florida, in 1900. The fountain used free-flowing artesian wells under the city. The Lyman Bank, pictured on the right, was the first brick building in Sanford. Located at 101 West First Street, the building was originally constructed in 1883. In 1887, the bank changed hands and became the First National Bank No. 1. Building renovations, undertaken during the same year, included adding a marble facade, moving the front entrance to the corner of the building, and placing a clock at the front of the building. The town clock is currently located in Magnolia Square. First National Bank No. 1 is the oldest brick building in Sanford's downtown commercial district. The organizational meetings to create Rollins College were held in this building in 1885.
