Sandy Ground has experienced “major change” since appearing in City Limits 25 years ago, says Sylvia Dalessandro, lifelong resident of the community and executive director of the Sandy Ground Historical Museum. Although Sandy Ground was added to the National Register of Historic Places as an archeological site shortly after the article below was published in 1982, development around the community continued unabated. Most of the original buildings were destroyed or remodeled, and the 10 remaining Sandy Ground families now live among 500 to 600 other families who are new to the area, Dalessandro says.
