Historic Districts

The Sandwich Historical Commission laid out 22 local historic districts and documented 815 individual historic properties between 1973 and 1994. They further designated three National Register Historic Districts: Jarvesville, Town Hall Square and Spring Hill, in 2010.

The map, below, outlines the local historic districts in blue, marks the contributing properties of the National Register districts in red and the other historic properties in green. Scroll down for close-up maps of each district.
