Seth Freeman Nye was an important Sandwich figure both in law and business and subsequently was one of the richest men in town during the mid-19th century. His Federal-style law office was on the corner of Grove Street and Main Street overlooking the old Sandwich Town Hall where it still stands today. He was very generous with his wealth and was once featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not for having said that no lawyer could justify a fee of $10.00.
