Outlandish Florida Man stories get all the attention, but the Sunshine State’s history is just as entertaining. Celery City Stories explores the incredible history of one of Florida’s oldest cities - Sanford, located in Central Florida. Long before Disney World was created, Sanford’s history goes back almost 200 years and is filled with amazing people who went on to change the world. Whether it’s sports, business, military, civil rights, entertainment, you name it, the city of Sanford’s influence has been felt far and wide. Plus, Seminole County is located in the heart of the Sunshine State, so there are plenty of “it-can-only-happen-in-Florida” type of stories. Dan Ping, host/creator of Celery City Stories, is a journalist who’s been writing about Sanford and Seminole County for more than 20 years.
