Throughout its almost 300-year history Wenham has retained much of its unique historic character and tranquil rural scenery. A town of many open views of farm lands, lakes, woodlands, and old stone walls along winding, tree-lined roads, the community has an active and involved citizenry dedicated to preserving the past while planning ahead for future generations.
Today, Wenham has nearly 300 acres of parks, playgrounds, and recreational lands plus an excellent regional school system. Wenham is also home to Gordon College.
A walk along Wenham's lovely main street provides a timeless picture of beautiful old homes, gardens, and yards, punctuated by friendly faces that reflect the essence of New England small-town life.
Utilizing the town’s many parks and playgrounds, the Wenham Recreation Department maintains a robust year-round schedule of activities for children of all ages. Adult options run the gamut from exercise classes and arts opportunities to adult education classes.
The Wenham Museum is an excellent resource for local history buffs while The Wenham Village Improvement Society offers numerous volunteer opportunities. The group also provides a “Free Lunch for Voters” at its traditional Saturday Town Meeting.
