Sandwich gets its name from the seaport of Sandwich in Kent, England. Once a community of Native Americans, the town was eventually settled by Europeans and became a thriving commercial hub. Today, its bygone era can be witnessed through the historic homesteads that dot its quaint landscape, such as the Benjamin Nye Homestead that dates back to the 18th Century. For outdoor enthusiasts, Sandwich is home to the Oak Crest Cove Park, which features a skate park and tennis courts. Sandwich Glass Museum is another spectacular attraction to witness rare glass and glassworks.
