Rollins College incorporated in Sanford in 1885

Here’s something many of you may not know: Rollins College, Florida’s Oldest Institution of Higher Education was incorporated, organized and named in Sanford in 1885. The marker on the picture was apparently placed on First Street in 1935! And all the times I have walked up and down First Street I have overlooked it? Well, now I am finally aware of it 🙂

Hi, my name is Claudia! I live, work and play in Sanford, FL. To top it all off, I am also totally in love with Sanford! My husband Jose and I are Realtors in Sanford, FL and help people realize their dreams of home ownership. We have two sons, Nicolas (2011) and Lukas (2013). I am originally from Germany, moved here in 2004. In 2008 I started Sanford365.com. I love everything that says creativity. Design is my passion, no matter if Graphic, Web or Fashion Design - and I am also into photography :) I'm also very social and love to hang out with my family and friends, be it for a kids play date or a fun night out ;)
