Dodge Macknight Watercolor Reproductions Now Available
The Friends of the Sandwich Town Archives is offering a giclee print of 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 will be made available in limited quantities as a fundraiser to support the Sandwich Town Archives. The reproduction will be offered in two different editions. There will be 200 16"x22" prints at a cost of $75.00 and 300 11"x15" prints at a cost of $50.00 each. The print would make an excellent Christmas gift. The prints will be available for purchase by mail and at lim at the library. Payment is by check only. If you would like the print framed, the Friends of the Sandwich Town Archives has partnered with Picture This in Merchants' Square to offer a 20% discount on framing services. Picture This will also be selling the print on behalf of the Friends of the Sandwich Town Archives.
Who We Are and What We Do
The Sandwich Town Archives is a place where the past and present come together. Researchers will find records of historical significance and value, from Sandwich census information to old postcards with Sandwich scenes. There is a bit of history for everyone to glimpse, no matter what the interest.
The primary purpose of the Archives is to collect, maintain, preserve, and make available historic materials to researchers and anyone interested in a bit of local history.
Where and When
Support the Archives
Special projects for the Archives are funded primarily from Friends of the Sandwich Town Archives (FOSTA) through their annual membership drive. The Archives also participates in collaborative grant writing with the Sandwich Public Library.
We currently need to create databases for holdings, and convert photographs to a digital format.
To Donate Materials:
The Sandwich Archives and Historical Center continues to collect materials that pertain to Sandwich and its people, past and present.
Anyone wishing to donate family papers or photographs can contact the archivist, Deborah Rich. All materials donated are preserved in acid-free folders and boxes. Photographs are boxed in Mylar sleeves in acid-free folders for their protection.
We would love to know what you think, and suggestions are always welcome.
