Sandwich Archives


Who We Are and What We Do

The Sandwich Town Archives is a place where the past and present come together.  Researchers will find records of historical significance and value, from Sandwich census information to old parchives clockostcards with Sandwich scenes.  There is a bit of history for everyone to glimpse, no matter what the interest.
The primary purpose of the Archives is to collect, maintain, preserve, and make available historic materials to researchers and anyone interested in local history.

The Collections

Support the Archives 

Special projects for the Archives are funded primarily from Friends of the Sandwich Town Archives  (FOSTA) through their annual membership drive.  The Archives also participates in collaborative grant writing with the Sandwich Public Library.
We currently need to create databases for holdings, and convert photographs to a digital format.

To Donate Materials:

The Sandwich Archives and Historical Center continues to collect materials that pertain to Sandwich and its people, past and present. 
Anyone wishing to donate family papers or photographs can contact the archivist, Deborah Rich.  All materials donated are preserved in acid-free folders and boxes.  Photographs are boxed in Mylar sleeves in acid-free folders for their protection.
