The Sandwich Town Archives is proud to announce that the Sandwich Observer has been digitized and is ready to search. The Sandwich Observer was a local newspaper published between 1845 and 1899, as close as we can determine and included local news, advertisements and entertainment in the form of short stories or anecdoates. The Sandwich Observer can be searched by keyword or browed by date of publication. Thanks to Community Preservation funding, we will soon be adding digitized content of the Sandwich Independent and others.  You can see The Sandwich Observer HERE.
