Overview

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.

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...More

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

OK, I'm he first to admit that compared to some places in Europe, 180+ years is not that old, but for the U.S. it's pretty old. Restored (beautifully) in 2009, this building is worth a few minutes of your time for a visit. It's still...More

This is my favorite town on the cape. It is almost like a movie set with the wonderful beaches, quaint B+B's and the stunning old churches. Bring your camera but it is very hard to get an isolated shot of your subject.

Beautiful, imposing structure. The Sandwich Town Hall is right across from the Sandwich Glass Museum. There was a trolley available to go to different sites, but everything is very walkable in Sandwich.

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...More
