Sandwich Town Hall/Mill Creek
Sandwich Town Hall
Built in 1834, this columned Greek Revival, continues to serve as the seat of town government and is one of the oldest town halls in New England. In 2009, the building was beautifully and accurately restored and received the preservation award for rehabilitation & restoration by the Massachusetts Historical Commission
From spring-fed Shawme Pond and down the Herring Run, Mill Creek also powers the mill, winds through rich marshlands and flows under the famous Sandwich Boardwalk to the Old Harbor where the Boston & Sandwich Glass Factory was built by Deming Jarves in 1825. See this renowned glass at the Sandwich Glass Museum next to the park.
