The town of Sandwich, in Carroll County, New Hampshire, includes the villages of Sandwich, Center Sandwich, North Sandwich, and Whiteface, as well as a portion of the White Mountain National Forest, to the north, and part of Squam Lake in southwestern Sandwich. The primary population area of the town is in Center Sandwich. Chartered by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth in 1763, it was named for John Montague, 4th Earl of Sandwich, reputed to have been the inventor of the sandwich. Sandwich was settled in 1767 but, by the end of the 1800s, a large portion of its population had moved to cities in the west, and Sandwich began to attract summer residents, artists, and tourists.
