Sanford has five National Register Historic Districts:
Property owners in National Register Districts are eligible for state and federal tax credits for substantial rehabilitation projects, which are approved in advance by the State Historic Preservation Office. Sanford's two Local Historic Districts are Downtown Sanford and Rosemount McIver Park.
