This course will consist of a telling of histories for the nearly 400-year-old town of Sandwich, the oldest town on Cape Cod. This collection of stories is a result of the coordinator’s original research from the town’s archives and elsewhere over the last 20 years. There is something for everyone – from history buff to inquisitive visitor to lover of a good story – with maps, images and photographs to accompany these fascinating tales.
