Open June 21, 2014 - October 4, 2014, Wednesday - Saturday

Home of the Sandwich Historical Society, the building was built ca. 1850 and was the home of "Uncle" Elisha Marston (1801-1902) and "Aunt" Lucy Marston (1806-1882).

The collections of the Sandwich Historical Society Museum in the Elisha Marston House are remarkable for their quality and variety. The museum houses objects which were originally owned by early Sandwich families. Particularly extensive collections include early tools, house furnishings and textiles. Most of the furnishings are appropriate to the modest homes of the farmers, artisans, and shopkeepers of the 19th  century who lived and worked in Sandwich.

The work of early local painters such as Albert Gallatin Hoit, Fred G. Quimby and summer resident E. Wood Perry, are well represented in our current collection.

Each winter a major exhibit utilizing the museum's collections is prepared and is open throughout the summer. Recent exhibits have featured the Quimby School of Sandwich, the development of spinning, basket makers of Sandwich, early maps, and twentieth century Sandwich crafts.
