demand for housing outpaced the ability of developers’ ability to construct. That didn’t stop Biltmore investors from financing the $30 million development of Harder Hall as a major resort complex complete with its own golf course and home sites. By the late 1920s, an end to the boom brought fraudulent land sales, railroad embargoes and clogged shipyards. The City of Sebring suffered along with the rest of the nation following the stock market’s “Crash of ‘29.” But the area got a tremendous boost from the establishment of Highlands Hammock State Park — Florida’s very first state park — and the construction of Hendrick’s Field by the U.S. Army Air Force. Today, the airfield is home to Sebring Regional Airport. Downtown Sebring has since been designated a 1920s Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. Area pride and excitement was revived in the 1950s when annual international sports car racing began at the airport, utilizing many of the concrete runways built during the facility’s years as a military flight training base. The world renowned Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring continues today as the oldest sports car race of its kind in North America. Like many central business districts in America, downtown Sebring suffered a slump in the 1970s that began to correct itself a decade later. With an eye on the future, the Sebring City Council — through special legislation — created the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) to spearhead development and improvements in the downtown area. As a result, Sebring was named a Florida Main Street Community in 1966 and subsequently invested more than $20 million in renovations and upgrades. Today, downtown Sebring offers a unique blend of shops, restaurants and professional businesses. All are within walking distance of Sebring’s Cultural Center, which includes the public library, Sebring Historical 18 Welcome to Sebring
