Visit the Benjamin Nye Homestead & Museum, built in 1678 by one of the earliest settlers of Sandwich, Massachusetts. Located in a rural setting with marsh views and mill stream, the Nye Homestead and Museum is a fine example of a timber frame home in colonial America.

With rooms restored to different eras, the Nye Homestead & Museum is furnished with interesting antiques from the colonial period into the 19th century. Adjacent to the homestead are the 1889 East Sandwich Grange Hall and the 1858 mill site, our current restoration project. Your donation will help us preserve and complete this……… thank you!
