300 Years of History
The Sands House Foundation
Realizing a long-held dream, Margery Dowsett established the non-profit 501(c)(3) Sands House Foundation in 1999.  The foundation was dedicated to continuing the preservation, restoration, and maintenance of the Sands House.  

Another of the foundation’s goals was to provide opportunities for study, research, and educational activities related to the architecture, archaeology, contents, and history of the house and its surroundings.
The Sands House Foundation ceased operations in December 2011 after completing a final restoration of windows in the house.
