Sanford is a lunar impact crater, located in the northern latitudes on the Moon's far side. It lies to the south-southeast of the crater Klute, just to the west-northwest of Teisserenc. To the southwest lies Joule; this is a circular crater formation with a worn outer rim. A pair of small craterlets lies along the eastern rim, the satellite crater Sanford C is attached to the outer edge along the north-northwest. Attached to the southern exterior is what may be the remains of a larger, unnamed crater, now eroded. By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater midpoint, closest to Sanford

Because Sanford sits where white beach sand from the coast meets the Piedmont clay, the city has the right ingredients to be a large producer of clay bricks. In 1959, Sanford produced 10% of the bricks in the United States and was named "Brick Capital of the USA". Today large brick production continues via manufacturers such as Lee Brick & Tile. Sanford produces textiles, has since seen the influx of the biotech industry with the Wyeth Vaccines, aka Pfizer, facility becoming the area's largest employer in 2006.

Sanford is a city in the central region of the U. S. is the county seat of Seminole County. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 53,570. Known as the "Historic Waterfront Gateway City," Sanford sits on the southern shore of Lake Monroe at the head of navigation on the St. Johns River. Native Americans first settled in the area thousands of years; the Seminoles would arrive in the area in the 18th century. During the Second Seminole War in 1836, the United States Army established Camp Monroe and built a road, known as Mellonville Avenue; the city sits 20 miles northeast of Orlando. Sanford is home to Seminole State College of Florida and the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens, its downtown attracts tourists with shops, restaurants, a marina, a lakefront walking trail. The Orlando Sanford International Airport, in the heart of the town, functions as the secondary commercial airport for international and domestic carriers in the Orlando metropolitan area; the Central Florida Zoo Local Parks Fort Mellon Park The Paw Park Sanford Park on Park The Wayne Densch performing arts center Alive After Five Sanford Museum Central Florida Soapbox Derby Historic Sanford Memorial Stadium Theater West End The city's RiverWalk trail is a bike/walk/run trail, completed in 2004.
The ten-foot wide paved walkway spans a distance of several miles in Sanford's downtown area along the waterfront of Lake Monroe. Phase 2, which adds over 3000 feet to the trail, was completed in 2014. Phase 3 is expected to be complete by 2020; the city completed multimillion-dollar streetscapes of 1st Street and Sanford Avenue in its historic downtown, using brick pavers, creating wider sidewalks, adding trees and benches. Sanford is connected to the central Florida commuter railway SunRail, with the station 2 miles from the downtown. To support green initiatives, Sanford has added five electric car charging stations; the city is proposing to replace streetlamp bulbs with LED lights. In 2012, the city launched the "Imagine Sanford" initiative, which asks all Sanford residents to get involved in city planning by submitting and voting on improvement ideas via the city's Imagine Sanford website; the city of Sanford launched a redesigned city government website in 2012. The Mayaca or Jororo Indians inhabited the shores of Lake Monroe at the time of European contact.
By 1760, however and disease had decimated the tribe, which would be replaced by the Seminole Indians. Florida was acquired by the United States from Spain in 1821, but the Seminole Wars would delay settlement. In 1835, the Seminoles burned the port of Palatka on the St. Johns River the major artery into Central Florida from the East Coast. An army garrison was established upstream, on the southern side of Lake Monroe near a trading post. Called Camp Monroe, the log breastwork was attacked on February 8, 1837, it would be strengthened and renamed Fort Mellon in honor of Captain Charles Mellon, the sole American casualty. General Zachary Taylor had a road built connecting a string of defenses from Lake Monroe to Fort Brooke; the town of Mellonville was founded around Fort Mellon in 1842 by Daniel Stewart. In 1845, Florida became a U. S. state, Mellonville became county seat of Orange County called Mosquito County with its county seat across the lake at Enterprise. Orange groves were planted, with the first fruit packing plant built in 1869.
In 1870, "General" Henry Shelton Sanford bought 12,548 acres to the west of Mellonville and laid out the community of Sanford. Believing it would become a transportation hub, he called it "The Gateway City to South Florida." Several groups of Swedes were imported as indentured servants to do the back-breaking labor of establishing a new town and clearing the sub-tropical wilderness in advance of creating a citrus empire, arriving by steamboat in 1871. Incorporated in 1877 with a population of 100, Sanford absorbed Mellonville in 1883; the South Florida Railroad ran a line from Sanford to Tampa the Jacksonville and Key West Railroad ran a line to Jacksonville, the area became the largest shipper of oranges in the world. Arriving by steamer in April 1883, President Chester A. Arthur vacationed a week at the Sanford House, a lakeside hotel built in 1875 and expanded in 1882. In 1887, the city suffered a devastating fire, followed the next year by a statewide epidemic of yellow fever; when the Great Freeze of 1894 and 1895 ruined the citrus industry, farmers diversified by growing vegetables as well.
Celery was first planted in 1896, because of this Sanford is nicknamed the "Celery City." On December 1, 1891, merchant William Clark and registered African American voters of Goldsboro incorporated as a town just to the south of Sanford. In 1911, the community of Sanford Heights seceded from Sanford, because of discord over municipal services provided by Sanford; this added to concerns that Sanford's ability to expand would be constrained by the surrounding towns of Goldsboro and Sanford Heights, as well as Lake Monroe to the north. Florida State Representative and former Sanford mayor Forrest Lake led legislative efforts to curtail Sanford Heights' ability to incorporate, independent of Sanford. Goldsboro was a target in Forrest Lake's annexation process, prompting Goldsboro's leaders to start a letter writing campaign to local newspapers. On April 6, 1911, the Sanford city council passed a resolution to annex Goldsboro and on April 26, 1911 the Florida legislature passed the Sanford Charter Bill, dissolving the incorporation of both Sanford and Goldsboro, reorganizing Sanford as a city that included Goldsboro within its boundaries.
Sanford's Opera Troupe
Sanford's Opera Troupe was an American blackface minstrel troupe headed by Samuel S. Sanford; the troupe began in 1853 under the name Sanford's Minstrels. The name changed that same year to Sanford's Opera Troupe; the lineup changed again in 1857, when they disbanded. Mahar, William J..

Sanford is a city in York County, United States. The population was 20,798 in the 2010 census, making it the seventh largest municipality in the state. Situated on the Mousam River, Sanford includes the village of Springvale; the city features many lakes in wooded areas. Sanford is Maine metropolitan statistical area. On November 6, 2012, Sanford voters approved a new charter to re-incorporate Sanford as a city and replace the town meeting format with a city council/mayor/strong manager form of government, along with other changes; the new charter took effect on January 1, 2013. Sanford's new charter provides that the first mayor would be appointed from the ranks of Sanford's seven city councilors and serve interim for one-year period. On January 8, 2013, Maura A. Herlihy was appointed as Sanford's first mayor. In 2014, an elected-at-large mayor would serve a three-year initial first term. On November 5, 2013, Thomas Cote was elected as mayor. Beginning in 2016, the mayoral position will be elected at-large every two years during legislative election cycles.
Sanford is in the western portion of a tract of land purchased in 1661 from Abenaki Chief Fluellin by Major William Phillips, an owner of mills in Saco. First called Phillipstown, it was willed in 1696 by Mrs. Phillips to her former husband's son, Peleg Sanford. Settlement was delayed, however, by hostilities during the Indian Wars. In 1724, Norridgewock, an enemy stronghold on the Kennebec River, was destroyed by a Massachusetts militia. Subsequently, the region became less dangerous, Sanford was first settled in 1739. Incorporated a town in 1768, it was named after Peleg Sanford; until 1794, Alfred was the town's North Parish. The Mousam River provided water power for industry. In 1745, Capt. Market Morrison built a sawmill above Springvale. Following the Civil War, Sanford developed into a textile manufacturing center, connected to markets by the Portland and Rochester Railroad. Factories were built at both Sanford villages. Products included cotton and woolen goods, carpets and lumber. In 1867, British-born Thomas Goodall established the Goodall Mills at Sanford, after selling another mill in 1865 at Troy, New Hampshire which made woolen blankets contoured to fit horses.
His factory beside the Mousam River first manufactured carriage blankets. It would expand to make mohair plush for upholstering railroad seats, draperies, auto fabrics, military uniform fabric and Palm Beach fabric for summer suits; the company's textiles were known for brilliant and fast colors, found buyers worldwide. From 1880 to 1910, the mill town's population swelled from 2,700 to over 9,000, some living in houses built by the company and sold to workers at cost. In 1914, the Goodall family built Goodall Park, a 784-seat roofed stadium, now a treasured historic site, they helped build the library, town hall, hospital and golf club. A bronze statue was erected by the citizens of Sanford in 1917 to the memory of Thomas Goodall, his effigy has a place of honor in Central Park. George and Henrietta Goodall's daughter, Marion C. Goodall Marland, her husband William Marland, continued the Goodall family philanthropy. A dormitory at Nasson College bears the Marland's name. In 1954, Burlington Mills the nation's largest textile firm, bought Sanford Mills.
After moving the looms to its Southern plants, Burlington closed Sanford Mills—leaving 3,600 unemployed and 2,000,000 square feet of empty mills. Local business owners began enticing employers to move to the area. In November 1955, NBC's Armstrong Circle Theatre dramatized Sanford's comeback on television in “The Town that Refused to Die”, starring Darren McGavin and Jason Robards; the story was featured in LIFE magazine's feature on "Community Boosters" on August 5, 1957. It now has diversified industries, including biotech; when the federal government offered money in the 1960s for urban renewal to rehabilitate aging or blighted districts, more than thirty Sanford structures were razed. In Springvale, three of four corners were leveled. Much fine architecture from the town's prosperous mill era survived. Sanford was the home of Belle Ashton Leavitt, the third woman attorney admitted to the Maine Bar Association. Leavitt was admitted to the Bar in 1900. Leavitt operated in partnership with attorney Fred J. Allen, her brother-in-law, member of the Maine Legislature.
The town gained national notoriety in 1984, when Scott Waterhouse age 18, strangled 12-year-old Gycelle Cote. Rumors of Satanism surrounded the case, some of Waterhouse's personal belongings were deemed to be occult in nature; these included a notebook carrying Satanic drawings and poetry. The furor culminated in several tabloid stories, national television coverage, at least one headline referring to the town as "Terrortown!". The town again gained national notoriety on November 9, 2009, when the Amber Alert system was first used in the state for 2-year-old Hailey Traynham, abducted by her father. In 2003, Maine voters rejected a proposal to build a $650 million casino in South Sanford; the 362-acre development, ostensibly owned by the Penobscot and Passamaquoddy nations, would have included 4,000 slot machines, 180 gaming tables, a hotel, a 60,000-square-foot convention center and an 18-hole golf course. Proponents argued it would direct 25 % of its revenue to the state. Detractors predicted traffic and an erosion of Maine's quality of life.
On June 23, 2017, the largest mill fire Sanford firefighters have battled erupted. The flaming five-st
Mount Sanford (Alaska)
Mount Sanford is a shield volcano in the Wrangell Volcanic Field, in eastern Alaska near the Copper River. It is the sixth highest mountain in the United States and the third highest volcano behind Mount Bona and Mount Blackburn; the south face of the volcano, at the head of the Sanford Glacier, rises 8,000 feet in 1 mile resulting in one of the steepest gradients in North America. Mount Sanford is composed of andesite, is an ancient peak, being Pleistocene, although some of the upper parts of the mountain may be Holocene; the mountain first began developing 900,000 years ago, when it began growing on top of three smaller shield volcanoes that had coalesced. Although obscured by icefields, the uppermost 2,000 feet of the mountain appear to be a lava dome filling a larger summit crater. Two notable events in the mountain's history include a large rhyolite flow which traveled some 11 miles to the north east of the peak and has a volume of about 5 cubic miles, another flow which erupted from a rift zone on the flank of the volcano some 320,000 years ago.
The second flow marks the most recent activity of the volcano. The flow was dated using radiometric methods. Observers have reported minor activity at Sanford vapor clouds or plumes from ice and rockfalls; some reported incidents may have been orographic clouds, while others have been interpreted as avalanches. The majority of Mount Sanford above 8,000 feet is covered by icefields, merging to the south with that surrounding Mount Wrangell; the largest glacier on Sanford is the Sanford Glacier, whose source lies at the steep cirque that cuts into the south side of the mountain. The mountain was named in 1885 by Lieutenant Henry T. Allen of the U. S. Army, a descendant of Reuben Sanford. Mount Sanford was first climbed on July 21, 1938 by noted mountaineers Terris Moore and Bradford Washburn, via the still standard North Ramp route up the Sheep Glacier; this route "offers little technical difficulty" and "is a glacier hike all the way to the summit" but is still a serious mountaineering challenge due to the altitude and latitude of the peak.
The base of the route is accessed by air, but landing near the mountain is not straightforward. On March 12, 1948, Northwest Airlines Flight 4422 crashed into Mount Sanford. All 24 passengers and 6 crew members were killed; the wreckage was covered by snow and was not found again until 1999. The first solo ascent of Sanford was achieved on September 19, 1968, by Japanese mountaineer Naomi Uemura, who died just after making the first solo winter ascent of Denali.
