A walk along the Town of Wenham's lovely main street provides a timeless picture of gardens and yards, friendly faces and beautiful old homes. Wenham Massachusetts was originally settled in 1643 and has retained a lot of its unique historic character and tranquil rural scenery. The town is comprised of many open views of farm land, woodlands, and old stone walls that line the winding tree-lined roads.
Wenham is home to Gordon College and a top rated regional school system that it shares with the town of Hamilton. Wenham residents are justly proud of its historic past, its responsive local government, its nearly 300 acres of parks and its active, involved citizenry. Wenham, residents say, gives one a general sense of connection to all that is right about New England small town life.
