The best way to get to know Cape Cod is to experience its historic districts, such as the town of Sandwich.
Along the route carefully protected by a very strict, local historical society, you will get a feel for the region's history and tradition, which dates back to the time of our earliest settlers. Take a tour in the town of Sandwich. (The Cape is full of giggle-worthy town and street names, most of which are English in history or derived from the language of the native Wampanoag Indians).
Sandwich was incorporated in 1639 and was home to one of New England's finest glass factories, the Boston and Sandwich Glass Factory, founded in 1825. It is also home to the nation's oldest continuous congregation of Quakers. If you plan your trip for a Sunday, you are welcome to join a friends meeting at the Quaker Meeting House held at 10 a.m. in the original building.
