About Wenham
map
A walk along the Town of Wenham’s lovely main street provides a timeless picture of gardens and yards, friendly faces and beautiful old homes. Wenham Massachusetts was originally settled in 1643 and has retained a lot of its unique historic character and tranquil rural scenery. The town is comprised of many open views of farm land, woodlands, and old stone walls that line the winding tree-lined roads.

Wenham is home to Gordon College and a top rated regional school system that it shares with the town of Hamilton. Wenham residents are justly proud of its historic past, its responsive local government, its nearly 300 acres of parks and its active, involved citizenry. Wenham, residents say, gives one a general sense of connection to all that is right about New England small town life.

Spoonful of Sugar exhibit at Wenham Museum
Join us for a celebration of the 50th birthday of Disney's classic film, Mary Poppins.

Explore a 1910 nursery with antique toys, clothes, and furnishings like the Banks had. Make chalk drawings like Mary's friend Bert does, and time yourself tidying up the nursery with a spoonful of sugar.

Based on a series of children's books written by P.L. Travers, Disney's film Mary Poppins tells the story of the Banks family and their nanny, Mary Poppins, who blows into London on "the East wind" in 1910 and takes the family on a series of adventures, teaching them all lessons about life and love along the way.

Come explore a whimsical 1910 nursery filled with antique toys, clothes, and furnishings of the period, just like the Banks children had.

Climb on Admiral Boom's house-ship, make your own chalk drawings like Mary's friend Bert does, and time yourself tidying up the messy nursery with just a spoonful of sugar just as Mary and the Banks children did in this timeless children's story.

Included with museum admission.

$8 adults, $6 children, members free.

Group rates available.

Three Bags Full: All About Wool exhibit at Wenham Museum
Wool is a very ancient fiber which has been keeping us both warm and cool for thousands of years.

It can be dense and fuzzy or gossamer fine.

It is used for clothes (both what you see and don't), accessories, and even toys and dolls.

In West Gallery, we explore the versatility of wool, from cobwebby shawls and tough twill for military uniforms to tweed jackets and dress fabric.

Woven, knitted, crocheted, and felted, wool can do it all.

When: Jan 21, 2014 12 AM to Apr 27, 2014 12 AMin Wenham, Massachusetts (Tue, 21 Jan 2014 00 )
When God Left the Building- Gordon College

A pervasive part of the American fabric is fraying and decaying before our eyes. THE CHURCH IS WITHERING.

Though the vast majority (77%) of Americans identify themselves as Christians, they have largely stopped attending church. LESS THAN 20% of the population now makes it to church in a typical week. Some 4000 churches are closing every year. It’s a major and unprecedented social upheaval.

The film follows a church that has seen its attendance plunge from 900 to 40. In addition to external cultural factors that affect all churches, this church is disintegrating from the inside from a variety of human storms. A pastor who doesn’t know who or what God is. Fights over petty things. A faction of angry ex-members that devises a plan to take over the church.

Throughout the story, cameras also visit other dying churches—as well as innovative new forms of church that are thriving. These range from a ministry in a Pennsylvania pub to an outreach in Los Angeles that brings joy to skid-row moms.

By the end of the film, viewers will EXPERIENCE HOPE and a refreshing glimpse into how faith may be pursued in the future.
