Did you know the Sandy Spring Museum began in the basement of the Sandy Spring Bank? It's true, the history behind the museum itself is facinating! It all began when a group of residents noted that the community’s history was being sold off with every passing of a long-time resident. in 1981 a group of volunteers set up shop in the basement of the Sandy Spring Bank and incorporated the Sandy Spring Museum. This was the same group who started the Strawberry Festival, which has become part of the community’s history itself! The museum later set up residence at Tall Timbers in 1986 and celebrated its grand re-opening in 1997 at its permanent location on Bentley Road. The land on which the museum sits was donated by the Bentley Family, whose ancestors moved to Sandy Spring in the late 1700s. In 2007, the museum complex was completed with the addition of a state-of-the-art research library and collections storage facility. The museum now sits on 7 beautifully landscaped acres and is the heart of the Sandy Spring community.
