2. Sebring, Florida History. Known as “The City on the Circle,” Sebring, Florida extends the same warm welcome it has since it was founded by George Sebring. This pioneer conceived a unique circular plan as a focal point for this entire lakeside community. His idea was that all roads should lead to and from the center of the community, and despite many modern highway improvements since, thus it remains today.
