The Town of Sanford has a vast collection of artifacts, some of which date to the 18th century. The centerpiece of the collection are the glass negatives, nearly all by Fred Philpot. That collection fills 34 volumes.
The following are some of the books, newspapers and other related items in our collection. We hope to post a list of artifacts in the future.
