Dear Honored Guest, Teachers, administrators and staff at Goldsboro Elementary Magnet School agree: a school is much more than the building in which classes are held. A school’s history is part of what defines it and those at Goldsboro feel their school’s history is worth commemorating. All of Goldsboro’s past and present will join the City of Sanford and the Seminole County School District in celebrating its 100th anniversary this year on Friday, November 4, 2016. Celebration of the 100-year anniversary will begin with a day of special activities for students during regular school hours, followed by an openhouse tour of the school and a Celebration Event in the evening starting at 7 p.m. for current and former faculty and members of the community. We hope you will join us in celebrating 100 years of excellence as we continue on our educational expedition for another 100 magnificent years here at Goldsboro! Thank you for all that you do! We look forward to hearing from you, Goldsboro Elementary Magnet School Staff



Goldsboro Historical Museum

The heritage of Goldsboro is much like that of Florida’s Eatonville,( established 1887) and other African-American towns across the country. These communities began with a desire to be self- sustaing, self-governing and self-policing. A few, like Eatonville, survived. Many others were gobbled up or destroyed by larger communities threatened by their existence. Goldsboro, established 1891 as the second African-American town in Florida to become incorporated, lost its’ town charter and became a community within Sanford in 1911 when Forrest Lake, a powerful Sanford banker and state lawmaker, devised a plan to dissolve the charters of both Sanford and Goldsboro and create a new charter that would make Goldsboro a community inside of Sanford. Years later, fate caught up with Lake, when he was found guilty of unrelated embezzlement charges and sent to prison.
