The Dexter Grist Mill is one of the most photographed sites on Cape Cod. This working grist mill that overlooks Lower Shawme Pond is bordered by the Town Hall, herring run, picturesque colonial homes, and a cemetery with gravestones dated back to the 1600s. Freshly ground cornmeal packaged in old-fashioned cloth flour bags can be purchased and includes the mill’s popular recipes.
Take a trip back in time. The Hoxie House (circa 1640) reflects life in the town of Sandwich in the 17th-century. High on a bluff overlooking beautiful Shawme Pond in its original location rests the Hoxie House. The famous house was acquired by the town of Sandwich and in 1959 was fully and authentically restored.
