Goldsboro: An American Story

Many Sanford residents aren’t aware of the rich history in the Goldsboro community, or even that Goldsboro was it’s own city before Mayor Forrest Lake’s shenanigans in Tallahassee back in 1911 nullified Goldsboro’s city charter, allowing the city of Sanford to annex – some would say take – the community.

This 33-minute documentary is a good primer of Goldsboro’s history. It was produced by Goldsboro historian Valada Parker Flewellyn and the University of Central Florida School of Film and Digital Media.

And if you have not been to the Goldsboro Museum, go check it out to gain a more in-depth knowledge of this community.

Thanks to Francis Oliver for sharing this documentary.
