Wakefield, New Hampshire

Wakefield, New Hampshire, is a small but vital town located on the central eastern edge of New Hampshire’s shared border with Maine.  Directly on the route from the seacoast to the mountains, Wakefield is accustomed to tourists passing through and caters to them specifically with restaurants, campgrounds and motels.  More than just a “tourist town”, Wakefield has several burgeoning businesses and a strong economy based upon the hard-working, blue-collar residents that dwell within.

The area was originally settled in 1749 by families from Dover and Somersworth by way of a grant from the Masonian Proprietors.  Wakefield wasn’t first known as “Wakefield”, however, and underwent several name changes before finally settling on its current moniker.  “Ham’s-town”, “East-town” and “Water-town” were all considered before finally settling on Wakefield in 1794.  The town was so-named for an English village near the castle of Governor Wentworth’s ancestors.  In 1858, Wakefield annexed part of Milton in an effort to become a bit larger.  Wakefield was a popular stop on the way to the White Mountains as far back as the mid-1800s with coaches and, in the winter, sleighs stopping to give passengers a chance to stretch their legs and grab a bite.  Eventually, the railroad came to town and the town’s center shifted from Wakefield Corner to Sanbornville, the area in town that remains the retail district today.  Walking the streets of modern-day Wakefield, you will see many historic buildings, including the Wakefield Town Hall, which is listed with the NH State Register of Historic Places.

Wakefield has plenty to keep anyone busy, but the focus is on the great outdoors.  There are miles of trails that can be used for hiking and bicycling in the summer months and snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in the winter months.  In addition to several campgrounds, Wakefield has overnight and day camps for kids during the summer.  And speaking of kids, Wakefield offers organized youth sports in the way of soccer, basketball, football and baseball, so there’s no excuse for inactive children.  Wakefield is also home to several fine dining and casual eating establishments, many stores and shops, a museum and more.  Top it all off by it’s excellent location, and you have the perfect place to buy a home in NH.

Wakefield is a member of SAU #64, along with Milton, NH.  Wakefield operates its own elementary school, the Paul Taylor School, which educates resident children from kindergarten through the eighth grade.  Wakefield Students of high school age are taught at the Nute High School in neighboring Milton.
