Charted in 1763, the land was considered so inaccessible that the grant was enlarged making Sandwich one of the largest towns in the state. It was named in honor of John Motagu the fourth Earl of Sandwich. The Earl is known as the inventor of the sandwich, requesting from his servant a thin slab of meat placed between two slices of bread. The town of Sandwich is in the Sandwich Range with seventeen listed peaks including the Sandwich Dome.
