Sandwich, NH

Sandwich is located on Route 109, south of the White Mountain National Forest, about half way between I-93 and Route 16. It is a delightful small town containing the northeastern tip of Squam Lake.

The Sandwich Fair is held each year on Columbus Day weekend in October, and coincides with the fall foliage - so have your cameras ready. Events include livestock competitions, musical performances and 4-H awards. Many people call the Sandwich Fair their favorite: it's certainly an autumn highlight. A Ferris wheel ride on a chilly evening can't be beat.

Sandwich has some great architecture. The Great Wall of Sandwich Durgin Bridge - Click for a larger image! is a must see for stone wall lovers ('Fess up! We know you're out there!) The structure, built in the 1870s, runs along the Isaac Adams estate on Little Pond Road, located off Route 109 just outside of Center Sandwich. Sandwich is also home to the Durgin Bridge, built in 1869. The Sandwich Historical Society also owns 4 properties, including the Quimby Barn, housing a transportation museum including a Concord Coach, mail wagon, express wagon and summer hearse.

Historic Sandwich Notch Road offers access to the Sandwich Notch, hiking and a waterfall. There are hidden reminders of thing past, such as the foundations of homes and the remainders of gardens.

The Jonathan Beede House, 711 Mt. Israel Road, Center Sandwich, offers a restored, historic 1787 center-chimney colonial that once served as a stop on the Underground Railroad.

Dining in Sandwich includes the Corner House Inn, 22 Main Street, Center Sandwich, which offers seafood, steaks and a pub menu. People describe it as both homey and romantic. Not only do they offer occasional live music, they have seasonal weekly storytelling dinners.

Additional dining and lodging are available in nearby Moultonborough.

A little off the beaten path, Sandwich is a nice little surprise of town. Don't just go for the fair, go anytime.
