Scenes from Sandwich’s past: Red Geranium

You may not immediately recognize this grand old house on Main Street. The first owner was Henry Hennis, a saloonkeeper. He was born in Germany. He served in the Civil War in the Co. CE 36th infantry. His daughter was Emma Sibley and her daughter was Gretchen Sibley Schell. Mr. Sibley, when he was older, would sit in the window and wave to the children as they walked past on their way home from school. This building was at one time the location of the American Legion. It is now the Red Geranium. Note the wooden sidewalk and ramp, as well as the wooden railing to tie horses when their owners would come to shop or conduct business in town.
