Your Historical Commission working to preserve Wrentham's heritage.
The historic Wampum house, one of the oldest buildings in Wrentnam, and one of the oldest towns in Massachusetts, is being rennovated and preserved. The commission through private contributes and volunteer efforts, has improved and continues to improve this Colonial property. When driving by Wampum Corner take a look at the house. And
The property owner of 897 East street (Rt 140) has applied for a demolition permit to tear down the house proposing is to erect five row house condominiums. Your commission has rejected the demolition of this historic structurer, which is the first house you see entering Wrentham from Foxboro. The commission is working with the owner to attempt to work out a mutually advantageous solution. More information will soon be posted. The commission has until August of 2017 to broker a solution.
Here is the link to view a short video of the building which can be purchased for one dollar.
