Museum Open House June 6

The Sandy Bay Historical Society feels fortunate to have a large following of members, visitors and volunteers each year. Therefore we were delighted that our Sewall-Scripture House museum and research library was able to be re-opened in the summer of 2022.  Over the winter break of 2022-23, many improvements and additions have been made, including a new Granite Room.

This year our Summer Open House will be on July 1st. But, our 2023 events have begun. Please see our Events Page for more information.

 

Research Room Hours:

Tuesday’s 9:30-12:00

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Feel free to contact us or request research via the online forms on this website. Best wishes to everyone for a happy and healthy spring.
