Sandwich Chamber Unveils New Visitor’s Center

SANDWICH – After years of planning and discussion, the new Sandwich Visitor’s Center was unveiled during a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday.

The long-awaited opening was culminated after about $300,000 was raised to build the center.

A number of local contractors and the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office also volunteered their time and materials to construct the new location.

Sandwich Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jay Pateakos said that he was impressed with how many residents made a donation to the project.

“We’ve got people that won’t get a direct benefit, but they just want to have a beautiful building in town and they made it possible,” said Pateakos.

The new facility features indoor restrooms, a community meeting room and an expansive welcome desk and visitor info booth.

In March, the old center was cut in half and moved to its new home at Sandwich High School’s DeConto Field as a temporary concessions stand.

The Chamber has a 30 year lease on the land and the annual net rent is $1.

The new center will be open year-round and is also the location of the Chamber’s full-time office.

“This allows people to come in, relax a little bit, use the restrooms and be able to get to talk to people about things to do, not only around Sandwich, but all across Cape Cod,” said State Representative Randy Hunt.
