The Town of Wrentham was initially formed in the early 1660s after the Dedham general town meeting voted to establish a plantation on the 6 sq. miles purchased from King Philip. As a result, Wrentham was officially incorporated in 1673.


Located in Norfolk County, Wrentham has grown to occupy some 22 sq. miles with a population of over 11,000.  Wrentham is the only Wrentham in the United States and is named after the village of Wrentham in Beccles, Suffolk, England.


Today, Wrentham, along with the towns of Norfolk and Plainville, is part of what is colloquially known as “the Tri-Town” or the “King Philip Towns” because of their shared school system.


Wrentham is the home of King Philip Regional High School and The King Philip Warriors. The Warriors have been a dominant force in Massachusetts athletics in recent years, winning back-to-back state championships in football in 2016 and 2017 as well as the 2016 state title in softball. King Philip is also widely known for their nationally recognized music program which has won many accolades as of recently, including marching band national championships in 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2016.


In addition, Wrentham is also known for a bustling commercial scene, including the Wrentham Outlets, as well as an up and coming dining scene with local eateries including The Gavel Public House, The Tavern At Wrentham, Café Assisi, and Luciano’s.
