Charles Frank Broggi was manager of F. Broggi Co., grocery store, and distributor for Boston newspapers.
Born August 17, 1885 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, he died in Sanford January 13, 1931.
After Charles, this house was owned by his son Carl J. Broggi, who lived here until his death in 1956.
Carl inspired the organization of the Sanford-Springvale Chamber of Commerce and was a leader in the campaign to attract new industry to Sanford after the Goodall mills closed.
Paul Garvin, one-time Sanford Selectman, owned the house after the Broggis.
The house was later covered with asbestos siding.
