Wing Fort House

Built in 1641, this house was traditionally called the Fort House because of its possible use as a refuge from Indian attack. In 1646 it became the home of Stephen Wing, one of the early settlers of Sandwich, son of the Reverend John Wing and Deborah Bachelor.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.


The History Center serves as a museum with rotating exhibits, a meeting space for cousins, a research center, and an office for the curator. Opened in 2017, this center strives to share the Wing history.
