About This Project

 Sandwich Manufacturing played a huge part in the early development and growth of Sandwich. Even though  they shipped their products all over the world, and their  machines are still highly valued by collectors today,  most citizens have no idea what the Company meant to the area, if they even know it existed at all. Augustus Adams, along with his sons Henry and J.P, changed the way people farmed  around the world. I hope to tell the story of the Adams family and their company. I believe it's a story that needs to be told. 

Augustus Adams was a true pioneer in  the agricultural machinery business, He  designed and developed mowers, harvesters, corn shellers and so much more. His sons introduced a line of gas engines in 1914. He and his sons hold many patents for improvements to these machines. 

He never sought political office, but he was selected, elected and served. I will attempt to tell that story also.  

I'm open to suggestions, direction, and ideas that would improve this project. If you have anything to add, items to share, or a story to tell, please let me know, I'd like to hear from you. My email is  shawn3780@gmail.com
