Sandwich Town Hall Classic Film Series Continues:
–Friday, July 19, 2013, 7PM–
Presenting the Beautifully Restored Town Hall in Sandwich, Cape Cod’s Oldest Town, Featuring Community Events, Meetings, Movies, Shows, Talks and Tours in a Unique and Historic Setting.
Built in 1834, Sandwich Town Hall was restored to its former glory in 2009. The second floor ballroom where movies and theatrical productions are presented is particularly beautiful with its historically accurate ceiling stenciling of tan and brown paint and gold leaf. There’s also a theatrical stage, balcony seating and fully restored historic shuttered windows.
The Sandwich Town Hall was granted a Preservation Award for Rehabilitation & Restoration by the Massachusetts Historical Commission in 2011.
The Mission of the Friends of the Sandwich Town Hall is to support the continued stewardship of the historic Sandwich Town Hall, to assist the Town Manager and staff as a resource for volunteers, events, and programs, to provide, if feasible, funds for special purposes, and to make recommendations for the perpetual protection and enhancement of the Sandwich Town Hall as a major cultural, functional, and historic asset of the Town of Sandwich and the Commonwealth.
The Town Hall has been in active use as the seat of Town government for over 175 years. An award-winning rehabilitation and restoration was completed in 2010. The Friends actively encourages membership in the Friends of the Town Hall.
