Welcome to Sanford, North Carolina

The Sanford Area includes the City of Sanford, the Town of Broadway, and the County of Lee. Sanford is one of the fastest growing communities in North Carolina.  Carrington Homes is just a half hour from the Fort Bragg area.

The Sanford Area preserves the beauty and charm of its days as a small southern railway town and blends it with a modern and diverse economic base. Sanford is located in the geographic heart of North Carolina, with access to the world-renowned Research Triangle to our north, and the equally renowned golf courses and resorts in the Sand hills to our south.

Sanford is located in Lee County, North Carolina, which was formed from parts of the surrounding three counties in 1907. On creation of the new county, both Sanford and Jonesboro were the major towns in the area. Rather than decide which would be the county seat, the decision was to place the county's new courthouse directly between the two towns. For decades, Lee County was the only county in the United States to have a courthouse with an RFD address. In the late 20th century Sanford had grown to such an extent that it eventually merged with Jonesboro. The town of Jonesboro became Jonesboro Heights, and the name of Sanford was kept for the town.
