Wenham, MA

The town of Wenham was initially settled in 1635 and has retained much of its unique historical character in its tranquil rural scenery.

The town features many scenic views of farmlands, lakes, woodlands, and old stone walls accompanying its winding tree-lined roads. There is still very little industry and business in Town; Wenham remains predominantly residential, a bedroom community for the many adjacent towns.

Wenham is closely tied to its neighboring town, Hamilton, sharing a school system, library, recreation department, commuter rail station and newspaper. In 2010, the community of Hamilton-Wenham was listed among the “Best Places to Live” by Boston magazine.

Wenham is justly proud of its historic past and its nearly 300 acres of parks, playgrounds, and recreational lands. A walk along Wenham’s lovely main street provides a timeless picture of New England small town life.
