Town of Wenham Resources
 
The Town of Wenham was originally settled in 1643, and has fortunately, retained much of its unique, historic character and tranquil rural scenery. It is a town of many open views of farm lands, lakes, woodlands and old stone walls that accompany its winding tree-lined roads. To complement this handsome backdrop, the community is singularly fortunate to have been blessed with an active, involved citizenry, whose major goal has always been to protect what is precious from the past, while continuing to plan ahead for future generations.  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. Narrative supplied by community.
