Description

A newspaper article published by The Central Florida Press on June 20, 1930. The article describes rumors about the establishment of a new bank in the old First National Bank No. 2 Building, located at 101 East First Street in Sanford, Florida. According to the article, the bank would have a capital of $100,000 and a surplus of $30,000.

Also known as Sanford's first skyscraper, the First National Bank Building was designed by Mowbray & Uffinger of New York. Construction began in 1922 using steel, limestone, brick, and tile. A major reason why masonry and steel was used in the construction of the building was in response to a fire that occurred in Sanford in 1887. Originating from a bakery in downtown, many of the surrounding buildings were destroyed because they were constructed out of wood. After the fire, commercial buildings were constructed either with bricks or masonry. The First National Bank remained in the building until 1929. The building has served as a home for several banks since 1938.
