Sandwich Historical Society
A Look Back – Director Jim Mykland has pulled together some interesting entries from the Sandwich Reporter (1883-1944). Grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy!
February 2, 1888: The storm of last Thursday and Friday was one of the worst ever experienced in this region. The snow commenced to fall on Wednesday evening and continued all day Thursday, accompanied by a high wind, which drifted the snow in every direction completely blockading travel. The stage which started from the Centre on Thursday morning was unable to reach this place (Lower Corner) at all on that day, but managed to reach here Friday afternoon. The Weed hill was drifted so bad that the horses had to be unhitched and shoveled through and the sleigh hauled by hand. Moultonboro Corner was reached that night, and Centre Harbor on Saturday when the stage had to be abandoned and the mail was taken on a hand sled and hauled to Meredith, returning that night to Centre Harbor, bringing only the letters, reaching this place about noon Sunday, which was the first communication from the outside world since Wednesday night previous. By Monday the roads had been made passable and on Monday night we were rewarded by a four days paper mail. The railroads were all blockaded and on many roads the trains were all canceled. Thursday’s Boston mail train did not reach Meredith until Saturday. Many accidents were reported with some loss of life and considerable property damage. Three passenger trains were blockaded at one time between Meredith and Plymouth.

Rabbit Hole, Presented by Off the Dock Players
Coming soon to a theater near you!!!! Sandwich Town Hall, to be exact.
Off The Dock Players are excited to announce the staging of our newest production, Pulitzer prize-winning Rabbit Hole, a play by David Lindsay-Abaire, opening on February 23, 2024, running for three shows that weekend and two shows the following weekend.
Here's what Variety magazine had to say about this play:
"David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted a drama that's not just a departure but a revelation-an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion, and searing honesty"
And USA Today:
"RABBIT HOLE presents a tragedy and its consequences with utter candor, and without sentimentality. The dialogue is most impressive for capturing the awkwardness and pain of thinking people faced with an unthinkable situation- and eventually their capacity for survival, and even hope."
If those reviews don't pique your interest, how about these additional facts:
All of our actors are local.
Our directors, stage manager, and tech designer are local.
Our set was volunteer-built by your neighbors, a lot of them.
It's happening here in Sandwich. In February!
And in case you missed it above, it won a PULITZER PRIZE!
Performance tickets and dinner theater tickets can be reserved and purchased via email at email@example.com or in person at The Foothills. The set's nature limits the space's seating, so reserve soon!

Fairgrounds Nordic Ski Trails
The Sandwich Parks and Recreation Department wishes to thank the Sandwich Fair Association for their support in making the fairgrounds available for the Nordic Ski Trails. The trail system has access points from Quimby Field, the South gate of the Fairgrounds (Squam Lake rd.), and by the main Fair office. The trail system goes throughout the fairgrounds, Fair parking areas, town leech field, and Quimby Field.
The community is encouraged to use the trails. However, this trail system is also used by the Inter-Lakes Nordic ski team on several afternoons a week. It is possible the trails will be busy on a weekday afternoon, but by no means closed, during these practices. The trails will be closed for Inter-Lakes ski races on Monday, February 19.
Parks and Rec Director Ole Anderson asks that anyone who uses the trails for non-skiing purposes would respect that these are first and foremost groomed trails for skiers. Please keep your foot traffic to the edge of the groomed area. Footprints through the groomed area can severely and dangerously impact the terrain for the skiers. These trails are not for sledding, please do not sled or allow your children to sled on the trails. If you do take your dog, please pick up their poop. Not doing so is unacceptable anywhere and our groomed Nordic ski trails are no exception.
If you have any questions, program or event ideas, or would like to volunteer in Sandwich’s Parks and Recreation Department, please contact Ole Anderson
Sandwich Parks and Recreation Director at (603) 284-6473 or
