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.
