About Wrentham

Located mid way between Boston and Providence, Wrentham’s three lakes, substantial conservation land and open space, and small town New England charm create a comforting sense of peace and quiet.

Easy access to Gillette Stadium, Boston, Providence, Worcester, and Cape Cod puts a vast array of exciting cultural, sporting, and gastronomical activities and opportunities well within reach.

By maintaining the delicate balance between economic growth and conservation of her natural environment and scenic beauty, Wrentham has succeeded in providing residents and visitors alike with the very best of life in a small New England town.

Brief History

Wrentham was settled in response to a vote by Dedham selectmen who, in the early 1660s, ‘deputed men to search and view Indian lands around Wollomonopoag’ – as the area was then known. After viewing the land ‘near about the pond’ now known as Lake Pearl the men recommended to Dedham town meeting that a settlement be located here.

Shortly thereafter Dedham general town meeting voted to establish a plantation on the 6 sq. miles purchased from King Philip for L20, 10 S. Settlers drew lots for parcels of land in the Plantation. And after a rough start, Wrentham was actually incorporated in 1673. And thus Wrentham was born.

It is interesting to note that at various times throughout her history Wrentham has been known by a number of names including: Wollomonopoag, Sheldonville, Lake Pearl Station, and Wampum Station.
