The Sandwich Historical Commission is entering an exciting phase. Thanks to the contributions of our members and volunteers, we have recently achieved some notable steps in our mission to document the town’s historical assets.
Just in the last few months we have seen the following accomplishments:
- Town Archives General Index available online
- Over dozen MACRIS files updated
- 19 historic maps made available online
- Over a dozen Historic House Markers approved
There are important projects in work as well, including a vital headstone restoration project and an archival documentation project.
But there are other projects in need of preservation-minded volunteers to . . . uh, do.
The commission is actively searching for new volunteers interested in joining the membership. We’re looking for men and women of all ages, backgrounds and education levels. The only membership qualification is a sincere interest in the discovery, documentation, and preservation of Sandwich’s historical assets of all kinds.
Come join us at a future meeting, or send an email to me, Terry Blake, with any questions you have.
