Olde Sandwich Towne is an area very rich in history.   It is the oldest continuous European settlement in Ontario, as evidenced by its 31 historical sites from 1798 to the early 1900s as well as numerous historical murals throughout the community.  For hundreds of years "Neutral Nations"-aboriginals including Ottawa, Potawotamis, Wyandots and Chippewas--inhabited the Sandwich area prior to the arrival of Europeans.  In addition, Canada's Anti-Slavery Law in 1793 and the Emancipation Act in 1833 resulted in many black refugees crossing the Detroit River into the Sandwich area.
