Sanford's economy also benefits from its rich clay soil infused with sand, a unique Piedmont soil composition ideal for brick production. The town is named for C.O. Sanford, a railroad civil engineer who was instrumental in bringing rail lines to the area, enabling Sanford to transport these bricks across the nation, and earning it the title, “Brick Capital of the USA.” You can learn more about this heritage at Sanford's Railroad House Museum, a charming historic Gothic Revival cottage built in 1872.
