Settled in 1637 by families from the Saugus Plantation near Boston, Sandwich has acquired a unique character all its own. From its people, to its natural shoreline and wooded landscape, to its history with the early Indian neighbors and visiting Quakers, the Town of Sandwich is truly unique. As the oldest town on Cape Cod, Sandwich embraces its history and is proud that many of its families have played a large roll in settling other parts of New England and beyond. This book presents the history of Sandwich with the use of original town and Colony records, diaries, wills and deeds. It is illustrated with photographs, drawings, maps and charts, as well as an extensive bibliography. Sandwich, A Cape Cod Town offers a wealth of historical information on a town built by the ocean and molded by the people who lived there.
