The Town of Sandwich, New Hampshire, with a population exceeding 1200 is located on the shores of Squam Lake, and nestled between two major tourist regions of the Granite State - The Lakes Region and the White Mountains. It is a classic New England setting with colored forests, winding roads and rolling hills.

Celebrations and festivities highlighted the year in Sandwich, especially in 2013 as we celebrated our 250th.

Please join us in 2014 during our next Old Home Week celebration, scheduled for Sunday, August 3 - Sunday, August 10.

The sap is running which means it is the start of mud season.  We've had a tough and snowy winter, which will cause our gravel roads to get very muddy and rutted pretty quickly.  Take extra time to get where you need to go, and please be respectful of others (especially when passing) on our roads; those edges will get soft near the ditch-lines.  The Highway Crew is out raking those roads to try and dry them out a bit quicker. 

Remember there are weight limit postings on all our town roads.  If you have any questions about conditions or require special permission to drive them, please contact our Road Agent, Jon Peaslee at 284-6950. 

Here is the electronic version of the 2013 Town Report:
