The Jarvesville Historic District of Sandwich, Massachusetts is a predominantly residential historic district centered on the site of the former Boston and Sandwich Glass Company factory. It is located north and east of Sandwich Center. Although the area has buildings that date to the middle of the 18th century, most of the district's more than 200 contributing properties are residences built between 1825 and 1860, when the glass company was at its height. These houses are predominantly Cape and Greek Revival in character, and are modest one- and two-family buildings that originally housed glass factory workers.
