Sandwich Historical Society and Museums [NH]
The Sandwich Historical Society seeks to preserve and share the history of Sandwich, New Hampshire. To this end, the society operates the 1825 Lower Corner School, open to the public during special events; the 19th-century Quimby Barn, which houses a transportation museum; and the circa 1850 Elisha Marston House, home to the society headquarters and a local history museum. Society collections include historical everyday items previously used in Sandwich. Collection strengths include furnishings, tools, and textiles. Artistic highlights include works by Albert Gallatin Hoit (1809-1856), portrait and landscape artist; Fred G. Quimby (1863-1923); and E. Wood Perry (1831-1915).
The society offers a Junior Historical Society, a non-circulating reference library.
