Wenham is a charming rural residential community of fine homes and affluent residents. Located on the North Shore of Massachusetts, the town is just a short drive from ocean-side attractions and the numerous cultural and recreational offerings of its neighboring communities. Wenham is also roughly 22 miles north of Boston and is well-served by road and rail. The North Shore's major artery, Route 128 passes through town, as do Routes 1A, 22 and 97. Additionally, there is MBTA commuter rail service directly to North Station, Boston.
Wenham was first settled in 1643 and has preserved much of its unique historic character and rural setting. Winding roads lined with old trees and rambling stone walls pass the town's many farms, woodlands and lakes. Other open spaces include the town's nearly three-hundred acres of parks, playgrounds and recreational lands.
One of Wenham's greatest resources is the quality of its school system. Wenham shares a regional school district with neighboring Hamilton; the schools that comprise the Hamilton-Wenham district are among the finest in the state. Additionally, Wenham is host to Gordon College, a four-year liberal arts Christian college with a lovely campus of stone architecture set on rolling hills. Besides sharing schools, Wenham and its neighbor Hamilton also share a variety of other municipal departments and services including the public library and recreation departments.
The recreation department offers an array of youth sports activities. Only 5000 residents live in Wenham and they are spread out over nearly 8 square miles. This wide, undisturbed landscape offers a country atmosphere that can also be appreciated in the tiny commercial center of small shops and conveniences along Wenham's historic district on Main Street.
Adding to the community's typical small New England town flavor is a quaint Town Green dominated by a steepled white church of simple colonial design. Home prices in Wenham are a reflection of the town's affluent character and desirability. The architecture in this community echoes its history since incorporation in 1643. Homes are predominantly colonial and expanded saltbox styles.
