2016 Photo Project is now Complete and Online
Trust member Mike Smith has completed a project to photograph all the homes in the historic district in 2016, for archival purposes. You can find these photos from the "Archive Photos" button above and to the right. The Trust last did this in 2002. See how things have changed?
These photos, preserved in digital format, have been turned over to the Sanford Museum where they will be archived for future generations to come.
