Town Profile top of page

Town of Wenham was originally settled in 1643, and has retained much of its unique historic character and tranquil rural scenery to this day. The town boasts many open views of farm lands, lakes, woodlands and old stone walls that accompany its winding tree-lined roads.

Wenham is justly proud of its historic past; its present responsible and responsive local government; a wealth of dedicated and able volunteers; its nearly 300 acres of parks, playgrounds and recreational lands; and its excellent regional school system.

A walk along Wenham's lovely main street provides a timeless picture of beautiful old homes, gardens and yards, punctuated by friendly faces, residents say, giving one a general sense of connection to all that is right about New England small town life.
