Stephen Wing Farm
Stephen Rogers and Elizabeth Shove Wing were both notable Quakers. The house at 67 Grove Street once stood on land that is now Heritage Museums & Gardens. When raised in 1971 it was found to contain the frame and sheathing of an ancient one room house which was salvaged and re-assembled in Centerville by Stephen Hayes, Jr. (Source of details: The Sandwich Album by Rosanna Cullity and John Nye Cullity)

Tack Factory on Shawme Pond
The two buildings seen in this photo were of the Sandwich Tack Co., owned by I.T. Jones and Hiran Heald., which burned in 1883. The nearest building was used primarily as the office and for packing and shipping. The distant building was the water-powered factory, on the Upper Shawme dam. An elevated railroad was used to convey material between the two buildings. They were built in 1812-13 by Samuel Wing and his brothers as a cotton factory, the nearer building was used for worker housing.
Russell A. Lovell, Jr. 1980s
In 1973 he helped establish a Town Archive for Sandwich and worked tirelessly as the town's first Archivist as well as to author "Sandwich, A Cape Cod Town" in 1984.
