Museums Closed During Pandemic

The Sandy Bay Historical Society feels fortunate to have a large following of members, visitors and volunteers each year. Therefore we regret to announce that our two Rockport Museums will remain closed to the public until further notice. We hope to announce our 2021 schedule of programs in the coming months and look forward to seeing everyone again soon. In the meantime, feel free to contact us or request research via the online forms on this website.   Learn More
