Built in 1834, Sandwich Town Hall was restored to its former glory in 2009. The second floor ballroom and theater is particularly beautiful with its historically accurate ceiling stenciling of tan and brown paint and gold leaf. As in the early 1900s, silent films are again presented here complete with a live piano accompaniment. Sandwich Town Hall was granted a Preservation Award for Rehabilitation & Restoration by the Massachusetts Historical Commission in 2011. In 2014 Sandwich, the oldest town on the Cape, will be celebrating its 375th anniversary.

The Town Hall is very prominent as you enter town, right next to the Dexter Grist Mill and a block from the Sandwich Glass Museum. It has been beautifully restored. Unfortunately for me, I arrived on a Sunday so it was closed so I didn't get to walk inside.

Go upstairs to see the restored old Ballroom and place yourself back in time with this treasure that has been lovingly restored by the citizens of Sandwich, Ma., the oldest town on Cape Cod ( est. 1634)

Buit in 1834 this was one of the very first official town halls in the country. It was used over the years as a meeting place, movie theater, vaudville stage, concert hall and more. Meticulously restored over a 2 year period it was reopened in 2009. Its full history is still being discovered. Well worth a visit and a testiment... More

The old Town Hall was in disrepair for many years before being restored in 2010 (or thereabouts). The main room, upstairs, is now used for community events, plays, concerts, etc. It is a lovely room, lovingly restored to its 19th-century glory, including all its Victorian embellishments. Worth a look.

When in historic Sandwich, drop by the town hall. It was recently restored, and is worth a visit.
