This small historic house presents a fascinating look at the way folks lived in colonial Massachusetts.

History, that it has been preserved and gives insight into my town! Renovations were well done. Thanks for fighting for it.

Want to know about life in the colonies in the early 1700's? This place is amazing and informative. Many Sandwich families hail from the Hoxie line, and this is the family homestead.

I happened upon this site during an open tour day and stopped for a visit. What a wonderful experience. The guide was a member of the local historical society and she was entertaining and informative. An hour long experience filled with stories and amusing glimpses into society and values of the time (not so different from ours!) I always remembered this experience and comment every time I pass the place. Worth the visit!

Was not open when we visited, but you could walk around the house and see the grounds. This is an easy walk from the Sandwich Glass Museum.
