What is CLUB SANDWICH? No, it's not a deli. It's a new New Hampshire performance venue, the brainchild of veteran entertainer John Davidson. John brings his wealth of experience and years in the entertainment business to this exciting new venture.
Located in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire, CLUB SANDWICH premiered summer of 2021. Season 2 will open on June 24, 2022, and go through October 2, 2022. You'll enjoy an intimate musical evening in a cozy room with an audience of 40-ish friendly folks. John performs each Friday and Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. We hope our patrons will consider returning for multiple shows during the season and support live music in the Lakes Region. For seating, instead of standard chairs, you'll relax in (spaced) couches, loveseats and rockers.

Isaac Adams, a genius inventor and politician, founded Isaac Adams Homestead in 1855. Adams, a native of New Hampshire, purchased various farms and large plots of land over the course of seventy-five years, managing to amass more than twenty-five hundred acres of land. Instead of constructing the buildings from scratch, Isaac hired a crew with sleds and oxen to transport the original buildings up the hillside from other parts of Sandwich and from the neighboring town of Moultonboro. In its heyday, the estate was a fully functioning farm. Over the years, the property had several owners and eventually was left vacant and fell into disrepair.
