About
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.

Beautiful town
Jun 2018 • Couples
Beautiful town to walk around. Such a great building, as well as the church across the corner. Friendly walking area with Hoxie House the Mill, the glass museum around the corner and an interesting cemetery to browse a short walk across the mill. There are many shops right in the town, but this is an area of looking at the past not price tags.
Fun day.

Worth seeing for the picture along with steepled church right down road. This is part of a drive through Sandwhich, not a destination attraction. The sandwhich glass museum is right across road. Glad I got to see.

Sandwich is a beautiful little town with many historic buildings. There are plenty in the vicinity of the town hall along with memorials and a well manicured octopus tree. A really pretty town to walk around. According to the gentlemen in the mill, the Mayor of Sandwich in England had visited just the week before, We hope he enjoyed it as much as we did.

It's a building with a lot of history and apparently the second oldest Town Hall still in use today. It's right next to the Grist Mill and the Shawme Pond so take a pleasant walk around and enjoy.

What a beautiful little town hall. We parked right next to it while heading to Grist Mill. Visiting this little building was a treat. I'm glad I did. It only takes five minutes to see it. When you're done head over to the free town spring water. It's a continuous flowing spring water tap. It's drinkable. We saw several cars pull up, fill their bottles and drive off. We filled our bottles too. It's cold and refreshing.

The Family Enigma
Mar 2017 • Solo
Sandwich has always retained in my memory an elusive nature filled over the years with a kind of yearning and mystery all rolled into one. My Great Grandmothers family is from the area and it was here in Kent that she met my Great Grandfather. So connecting with family has always been high on my bucket list. I'm at tender age where yes 56 may seem old by the standards of a teenager. I was one in 1974 when our family first flew back across the Herring pond and never made to Kent. Then again at 23 the intent to visit was strong but Scotland beckoned with my other Grandmothers lilting song. The family in Sandwich were still there and so this March past I went. Sandwich is inviting from the moment you step off the train. I met a young tradesman and his son and we had a nice chat about this and that. I told him off my strong affinity for stone and the still in demand trade. He provided me with a perspective and a almost nostalgic glimpse into my great grandfathers world of 120 years ago when he squired a young lass from Kent. So just off the train trailing my suitcase I wandered into town towards my Hotel, The Bell. I met more locals out and about on this warm spring day and their friendliness spoke volumes to my heart. I visited the Town Hall with a desire for a hard copy map or brochure though Im sure Google would have sufficed. I was asked where I was from and though yes born in Canada I really felt I was coming home. The mystery of the enigma was being dispelled. I found a bicycle shop and rented, I like the idea of slowly travelling at a more leisurely pace and on wheels I didn't need to shift on the left. I found my relatives without to much work and had great conversations over tea through my three day sojourn. I cycled to the Roman Fort and bathed in its invaders decorum. I cycled out to the sea and visited the river estuary. Sandwich has moored Channel barges and other sea going craft, twisted cobbled streets, guild halls and great food fare. Seafood and Steak, Kentish ales and lagers. I'll be back to visit my ancestors again.

Sandwich is the oldest town on Cape Cod with the first settlers arriving in 1637. This 1834 Town Hall in the Greek Revival style is worth seeing. It is open to the public during the week. It may be the oldest, continually operating town hall in New England. Take a 5-10 minute look at the upstairs hall that was re entry restored to its old glory.

This building sits right in the center of town, scenic and historic. There is an artesian well in front and Shawmee Pond behind it
