Location Facts

Wrentham is a town in Norfolk County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was 12,178 at the 2020 census.

In 1660, five men from Dedham were sent to explore the lakes near George Indian’s wigwam and to report back to the selectmen what they found. The report of those men, Daniel Fisher, Anthony Fisher, Sgt. Fuller, Richard Ellis, and Richard Wheeler, was received with such enthusiasm that in March 1661 it was voted to start a new settlement there. The Town then voted to send Ellis and Timothy Dwight to go negotiate with King Phillip to purchase the title to the area known as Wollomonopoag.
