Historic Boardwalk T-Shirt: A Leap Into the Past

Demolition of the storm-damaged Sandwich Boardwalk has begun. It’s been hard for many to say goodbye to the iconic structure. It’s beauty, rich history (despite several rebuilds through the years), and the tradition of children leaping from it into the marsh below all evoke nostalgic summer memories.

To commemorate the old boardwalk, FOSTA is offering one-of-a-kind t-shirts imprinted with an historic color photo of the “plank walk,” as it was once known.

So “take a leap into the past” and purchase a boardwalk t-shirt!

 

FOSTA is a non-profit organization devoted to helping preserve Sandwich’s historic treasures. We first saw this as a fundraising opportunity but soon realized it was equally important to keep the price affordable so that more people might be able to enjoy wearing or making a gift of this fun item.


The shirt material is 6 oz. Ultra Cotton® in heather gray in sizes medium, large, and x-large. Sizes small, 2XL, and 3XL can be special ordered by contacting town archivist Deb Rich - click here.

Dodge Macknight Watercolor Reproduction

Portrait of young Dodge MacKnight painted by John Peter Russell

American post-Impressionist painter Dodge Macknight called Sandwich his home after moving here in 1900 to a house he named "The Hedges" on Route 6A where he painted this watercolor of his back yard kitchen garden. The largest collections of Dodge MacKnight paintings can be seen at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Museum of Fine Art, Boston.

The original watercolor was donated to the Sandwich Public Library and this is the  ONLY reproduction of the painting anywhere. The Library trustees gave FOSTA permission to reproduce and sell it to benefit the Sandwich Town Archives. 

This 11" x 15" giclee print is Dodge MacKnight's "Kitchen Garden" watercolor. This is the first time this unique piece of art has been reproduced and offered to the public for purchase. The print is available in limited quantities as a fundraiser to support the Sandwich Town Archives.

Historic Jenny Jones Map of Old Sandwich Village & Glass Factory Days

Sandwich_001-Retouched smlr.jpg

The Friends of the Sandwich Town Archives are excited to offer this hand drawn map of Sandwich. The historic map was hand drawn by Jenny Jones (Jane Bradford Jones) in 1939 during one of the restorations of the 1834 Town Hall. The map depicts Sandwich Village in 1825, the year the Boston and Sandwich Glass Works opened in what is now Jarvesville. Restoration of the map was performed by the North East Document Conservation Center.

 

The map measures 21" x 17" and is available in watercolor or black and white.

 

The black and white version may be painted or decorated with colored pencil by the purchaser. The sale of this map was very popular in 1939 and many residents chose to decorate the map with water colors.)

Colored map - $25

Black and white map - $20

Sandwich A Cape Cod Town by Russell A. Lovell, Jr.

First published in 1984, this updated edition is now available for purchase. 
Settled in 1637 by families from the Saugus Plantation near Boston, Sandwich has acquired a unique character all its own. From its people, to its natural shoreline and wooded landscape, to its history with the early Indian neighbors and visiting Quakers, the Town of Sandwich is truly unique. As the oldest town on Cape Cod, Sandwich embraces its history and is proud that many of its families have played a large roll in settling other parts of New England and beyond. This book presents the history of Sandwich with the use of original town and Colony records, diaries, wills and deeds. It is illustrated with photographs, drawings, maps and charts, as well as an extensive bibliography. Sandwich, A Cape Cod Town offers a wealth of historical information on a town built by the ocean and molded by the people who lived there.
