Sandy Neck Cultural Resources District is a historic district in Barnstable, Massachusetts. Sandy Neck is a long spit of land extending east-west on the northern shore of the lower portion of Cape Cod, sheltering Barnstable Harbor. This area has a fairly lengthy history of human occupation, including archaeological prehistoric and colonial historic resources. Archaeological research in the 1960s identified shell middens dating from the pre-contact Woodland Period.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
