May 22, 2012 – The town of Sandwich is very fortunate to have hundreds of homes and buildings that date back to the 17th, 18th and 19thcenturies. They have been preserved by different owners over the centuries and they reflect the many building styles, including the Salt Boxes of the 1600’s; the Capes, Georgian Colonials, and Federal architecture of the 1700’s; and the Greek Revivals and Victorians of the 1800’s. To recognize and promote the unique character of the town, the Sandwich Historical Commission created the Historical Marker Program a few years ago.
It has been a great success as evidenced by the 116 signs that have been purchased by the owners of these antique structures. Moreover, the program continues to grow as more and more people complete marker applications. The plaques show the name of the original owner as well as the year of construction. If owners need help in researching their homes, assistance can be provided by the SHC. Learn more.
