The town of Wenham was originally settled in 1635 and has a population of just over 5,000 residents. Wenham has retained much of its historic character, rural scenery and New England charm. The town offers residents wide open views of farm lands, lake, woodland, historic stone walls and countless historic homes that are similar to the neighboring town of Hamilton.
Wenham shares a lot of services with Hamilton including a school system, library, recreation department and commuter rail station. In fact, the two towns were named one of the “Best Places to Live” by Boston Magazine in 2010. One of the reasons for the high ranking was due to the exceptional Hamilton-Wenham public school district, which ranked in the top 10 percent in the state of Massachusetts.
Some points of interest in Wenham include the Claflin-Richards House, Grand Wenham Canal, Newman-Fiske-Dodge House and Wenham lake, which it shares with nearby Beverly.
If you wish to live in a quaint, small community with New England charm, Wenham might be your town!
